Dmitri & Dioboleque thx for your replies.
Never seen it that way and I must agree that the second one does looka bit like an abandoned dog.
@ Dioboleque I can't agree with the cropping suggestion cuz that would ruin the lines on the pavement, and these are the reason I took the picture for sake of that frame.
You're right about not cropping the first. It is really good as is (and certainly NO case for the bin!) and your (?) dog has room to look into within the frame! AND you watched for no parts of him cut off by your frame. Tail is also still within the frame - good.
I personally prefer the first over the second, I feel it is more thoughtfully composed.
