To me, each of the views has esthetic merit and each has a different subject and "message" that should be left to the artist. Again, I like each of the renderings. I think only Armand can decide what he intends. Of course this is obvious. Jes sayin...

It's not just flying, Chris. There's a corollary between the kind of aloneness you expressed in your posts, before they got prettied up, and the human condition. You may be an enthusiastic member of a prettied-up society during your life, but at the end you're as alone as that guy beside his campfire.

After all I believe our discussion proves at least its a strong image - one way round or the other ... :)

Well, I'm glad you can go beyond the technical deficiencies of this shot, I was almost ready to give up so I'm glad I posted it here.
While I get it that technically is better with more detail around, I still prefer it in the initial version as it enhances the feeling of solitude and that was what I was trying to communicate. That being said if it's not overdone some detail looks it's not going to be as bad as I thought it might be initially.

This is the version I printed on a canvas. I kept the shadows more open than initially to give a connection with the surroundings but I cloned the foreground building to keep the feeling of isolation that I was trying to convey in the first place.

I like your final result very much.

Yes, I tried to compensate for the small size. I print it's not that obvious though.
