Tough question. I think I like the vertical one more. The sky is amazing.

Re: plein air play...how would you crop?

I like the vertical crop as I like that portion of the sky more and it gives the figure a bit more of an impact. Gary

Re: plein air play...how would you crop?

Both are pretty good but I do like the first image - the sky has all the drama.
if the aim is to shift focus onto the figure, the crop is the way to go.

Your sky is beautiful, I would crop it to focus on the sky.

You have to ask yourself if it is about the woman or about the sky. I like Caroline's horizontal cropped version best.

I like the horizontal (1st) one the best.
Liking sky AND woman... nice painting.
But maybe Kay's question is the deciding factor.
