How can I compare them as you've deleted the original. You got my comments & chose to delete them, now you expect me to comment again possibly to see my efforts disappear again...........
Why would I bother.

Lovely combination of colour & form, light & shadow.
It appears to be a bit sharper but without a comparison it's hard for my fading memory to quantify this. There does appear to be the odd slight sharpening/processing halo present but that might just be my fading eyes.
There are no other obvious changes but as I said in my original comment the moon is well placed.
I would tone down the bright reflection on the right edge just above the the BR corner.

Regards, Ian.

So, why did you bother Ian?
I like the construction of this shot but, the focus appears to be way out of whack. Missed the original.
By the way Jonathon, the link to your website is displayed as aliengove, without the 'r'

"So, why did you bother Ian?"

Because he apologised to me.

"(looking forward to promotion beyond "New Member")"

So how does this occur Paul?

Both Ian and I are going into our third years of membership but we are still "New Members"! It's the same at work and the same at home - where the cleaning lady has even moved a notch above me! That stupid saying "wake up and smell the coffee" now seems to make more sense!

Your 'New Member' thing comes from the amount of posts you have on the main forum. Paul you have 5, Ian has 9. Posts here in the gallery aren't counted, I think because the gallery was 'bolted on' later. So just post more in the main forum, and you will no longer be 'New Members'
