The Hills #1a

Hi guys, I think you've seen enough of the photos relating to photojournalism. We're taking a new turn now.

I spent a lot of time working last night and got a lot done, so much so that I decided to spend sometime on this image. It's been inspired by the works of Lonna Tucker, for those of you who don't know her she is an expert when it comes to High dynamic range landscape images. This shot isn't an HDR as such but it's exposures have have been fiddled with in different parts.

I've processed 2 different versions and they are all very similar. I would post the other tomorrow. If you can tell me which appeals to you most and why that would be very much appreciated. I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked best.

For those who are curious, this shot was taken very early in the morning of a fashion job I was shooting in Italy. I can't remember the exact location but i know it was very close to Pisa.
