Okay, I'm a little stuck.
I'd really like your opinion on a kind of Andy Warhol-like creation of a vineyard I've made. I'm having a hard time deciding which version is best. If you have any thoughts, or simply just a *vote - let me know, I would love to hear from you :)
All the best to everyone and have a great week...

Wow every one of them is great honestly! I would pick the second one down, because it has a light color which seems more cheerful, and the rainbow effect works beautifully with it as well. The concept is excellent, and it certainly looks like a wonderful ad which depicts the pleasure you bring into your home with a nice bottle of wine! Outstanding work!

On balance I prefer number four. The lighting enables the rainbow to integrate whilst keeping the eye concentrated within the picture. It does, though, raise questions as to what is the subjectmatter of the image.
The bottom one might become the stronger with some slight adjustment, as the sharper contrast is not only more dramatic but suggests grapes and wine are the subject. For this, the colour of the barrel immediately behind the wine glass would need changing to better differentiate and possibly to give vitality. Grapes, wine and barrels are properly associative.
Dare I now be a little critical of your thumbnail? It lead me to expect a different kind of picture.

Hmm... this is hard... If I had to pick, I'd choose the 2nd one because:
1. The transition of color from the bottom left side into the field is smooth.
2. Even though frame 4 has a similarly smooth transition, the color of the field in frame 4 seems a *bit* too saturated.
3. The house in frame 2 has realistic colors, whic is more appealing than the amber-colored houses.
4. The glowing light between the left and right sides has a dreamy quality. ;)
This is a beautiful composite, I really like what you did. :D

Number two for me, it strikes a good balance between yellows and browns on the left and blues and green on the right. 4 is good, but there's a blue tinge to the vineyard there that doesn't quite look right.
In any event I kind of like them all put together like this myself. Gret work.

Actually, Warhol would have put them all on the same canvas, even as you have done here, as they all expressed some vital aspect of the process of creation. and it would let you get the most bang for your buck out of the whole thing.
If you make me choose, it would be number 3 from the top, as it seems to incorporate a nice harmony in the palette, while giving proper focus between the foreground "table" elements and the background of the vineyard. Good stuff, all round, anyway.
