The original is certainly beautiful but I do love how you brought out the shadows in this. I love the stronger difference in tones now. The clouds are wonderful!

Very dramatic take on this shot - good repeating triangle shapes and angles throughout the image to provide a repeating geometric theme

Interesting. You have a knack for creating weather. I had the feeling this was late fall, rather than early spring. Either way, nice edit.

The sky is great though the image seems a bit dark to me. Of course, that could be these ancient eyes!

I strongly prefer the Topaz version; the original is quite strong, but seems soft at distance. For me, the darker clouds confirm the diagonal visual flow through the frame. Very nice shot!

Beautiful image love all the different textures and colors. Topaz added some drama to it. Very nice.

I think the original is quite beautiful to begin with. To me, this version is a little too much. I like what you did, but I would back it off some. This seems to have too much contrast (too dark), and the sky seems overbearing instead of uplifting, as it is in the original. Also I don't get the same feel of distance in this version. It seems to have flattened the scene. I like what it did to the texture of the tree and marsh grass, but I think the grass is a bit overdone too.

Robert, this is beatuiful. This is what I envision using Topaz for, not too much, just enough to bring details back and add some punch to colors that ordinarily would not be seen. Great job.

Beautiful job. I like the wide angle here. Feels like I'm being sucked into the scene.
