Two images

Two images, one upright, one landscape.
Which do you prefer?




Both with EM1 Mk2 12-40mm lens.

Re: Two images

Prefer the first. on the second the top seems too busy and does not contribute to the overall image. Just my view of course

Too much messy branches in the top of the second one. Very distracting.
