I like the second one most, to me its a bit flat and could use a little help in PP to make it pop a bit more :D

Second one is better, needs more punch though

If you turn on Image editing I would like to take a stab at the second one.

Yes please turn on image editing and I'd like to have a go at #1.

Agree on the 2nd pic.

I like the second one the way it is, but can understand a desire to add some pp to the first

Isn't this where we brag about our gear? I have a super hot wife, a really cool dog, lots of bikes, oh and some overly expensive camera gear.

My brief thoughts, if their of use to you:
The first doesn't to that much for me, the telegraph poles are distracting.
The second is much nicer and to me more interesting, but as others have said needs a bit of pop! Perhaps a bit more contrast / clarity.
Hope that is useful.

Thanks for the comments so far.
Editing is now switched on (I've been reading posts at POTN for a several months now, but I am only just discovering the ins and outs of making my own posts - I am gradually getting all the options sorted).
I look forward to seeing the edits.

I like the firs one better, but you should straighten the horizon and you don't need so much sky.

I like #1 too but I'd go b&w with it.

The camera was level when I took the shot, but I take the point of the sloping horizon ... an electronic level doesn't always know best.

The B&W is an interesting variation. I may play about with this in the original RAW to see what I can get.

I think #2 needs some sharpness, brightness, and saturation. Here's a go at it.

The originals look very soft, not sharp.
