    Almost the same, but different :) which one is better and why? Or maybe both aren't good? why?

    I like the first one because it seems soft. The second one's good for the path, but the grass almost seems a touch overexposed compared to the first.

    I agree. The bottom one seems a harsh to me.

    I like the second one better. I think the composition is much stronger. The sun is a bit closer to the top of the frame, and the foregound has more interest with that light shining on the pavement.

    I like the second one way better. The lens flare of the first one is very boring. The lens flare of the second looks almost like a bird made of light. Very cool. I also agree with dMatt about the foreground pavement.

    I prefer the second picture. The path adds a nice element, the people give it more of a mood. I would have like to have seen a space between the bench and the tree but then you might have lost the flare....sigh.

    I like the first one better, the colour on the ground and on the leaves seems richer somehow.

    Thanks for comments and critiques... but still I can't decide which one is better :)
