Some old shots having some fun with an over-the-top HDR last night:

1. Almost mono



2. Colour



3. Original Crop


I would prefer the wider view of #3, but the modern garage is out of place and the bright driveway is a bit distracting

#2 - it's fantastic! Excellent!

Second place, in my opinion - shot 3
Regards, Vitaly.

I prefer the 1st over the 2nd as the muted colours give it some extra "something" (you choose: punch, feeling, impact, etc). I prefer the 1st over the 3rd as well, as in the 3rd the main building is too central. The garage doesn't really look (to me) that modern, given the processing and you can always dodge/burn (never knew which one is which - the one that darkens) to make it less prominent (for me the big blotch of white sky on the right is more distracting than the driveway).
Beauty is in the EYE/FILM/SENSOR of the beholder!

I like the wider view of #3 best, but the colors make #2 the best. Great shot

Thank you all for the comments and interesting to see mixed opinions.

One final version to keep Michele happy , and with a bit of 'burning' too (but the right bit of sky is blown)
(I always mix up dodging and burning too; the words make sense, but the icons seem to have been swapped )

4. Wide Colour

I think all three are very good and interesting in their own right. Well captured and processed.
