Number 3 for me. The different shades of blue are lovely. 4 is more dramatic...quite like that too.

Number 3 for me also, for the wonderful layering of the hills. If it were mine, I might try it with a bit less sky, and where the water meets the land, it looks as though the image needs a bit of pincushion correction?

Cheers.

Three with all the subtle layers in the hills for me, It makes me realise i'm missing Greece this year i've come to the scool of thought that landscapes aren't about extra wide angle very often.

I try to tell my brother this and he doesn't understand!

Excellent work with the 18-135mm, shows that it's a real gem of a lens to carry around! Number 3 is my favourite from the bunch.

2 and 3 I like BUT with less sky so the eye is more focused on the mountains

1 and 3 for me - no 1 has a delicate beauty to the sky and no 3 has the classic 'layers' feel!

Thanks for your comments and advice.

Philip - I hadn't spotted the pincushion on # 3, but you're right, thanks.

Numbers 1 and 3 for me

Number 3 could be presented in a number of ways - it would suit a B&W conversion, it has a good set of Mid-range tones that would look great as varying greys. It would certainly suit a crop, centralising on the valley with the over-lapping headlands - probably quite a tight crop too. Silver Efex Pro 2.0 should give some great options
