    Here are 2 different views of the same subject. I would appreciate comments on which view you think is better. Thanks in advance.

    Hmmm :scratch: ... this is a tough one.
    FlashHarry's question is well-founded, for I feel a shift of subject with the two different versions.

    When I see the second, the vertical frame, vertical as the high building in the background, that building moves to be "my" (seen) subject, and the scaffolding/whatever just its foreground, meaning to add ... something.

    The first, however, seems to focus on the scaffolding/whatever-it-is (though focus is at infinity, actually), and that is more in the centre of my attention ... and therefore I would wish the pigeon was sitting there in the FIRST photo and not in the second.

    Anyway, I see that the day was nice and clear and you did not want to take "just a boring pic of the highrise", so you went for something different, which I appreciate.

    But your question as to what is BETTER now ... I really don't know.
