I prefer this one to the other image though i'm not sure why. It just feels nicer to look at, perhaps with the gentle flowers slowly leading you into the more ragged rocky cliffs. With a vertical picture like this it's slightly more pronounced. Looking longer at the other one however makes me slightly unsure about my preference. The horizontal composistion along with slightly more water makes for a slightly more soothing picture and it lets your eyes roam a bit more i feel. That being said i think it would have been beneficial for slightly more room on top of the cliffs in the other picture as it feels a bit tight in the upper right hand corner. It seems as though in the other picture the first of the flowers are in focus but the rest is slightly softer is that just me?
