Linda, I was referring to the first set, not to be confused with your second edit. It just may have been the lighting and how it was shining onto the tree branches.

Yes, I understood was referencing the first. My reply had to do with my lack of ability at sharpening (as evidenced by that particular edit) and my usual preference for soft :D Many thanks!

I'm mostly leaning towards #1 telling the stronger story, though there are reasons I like #2. Do feel either reflects the title? Which is your preference, if either? Other feedback, suggestions and edits are welcome. Many thanks.
I like them both but my favorite is the second, and now I'm curious why they store their ladders that way. laf

These are how I see the first. S-

Re #2 - always happy to have an excuse to play! Here is one crop; please let me know if you had another idea, and also if there are any issues I should address with this painted version. Many thanks!
I'm loving the painting, great suggestion and well done! This is you! S-

Thanks for your editing ideas, Steve, and glad you liked the painted! I think the ladders indicate which rows were winter-pruned or where for next group of workers to start. The ladders will be stored elsewhere for a month or two, before the next round: thinning.

I was able to zoom in closer for a few shots, similar to your cropping, ended up liking the wider view better. But as Minnie suggested, an entirely different perspective would have likely been best. I'm going to have to accept that if I can't find a place to park the car and have a safe walk to the location, I really should just drive on past :|
