Ooops - I like the second better. It is tighter and more in theme (#1 has a distracting piece of sky and I find the cut off brick not as interesting)
#2: love the juxtaposition of shapes (round holes v straight brick lines), the light and shade and the textures. I also like the tight view - keeps my eye in the image but I still find it interesting to explore.
That's my 2c worth (and it probably is not even worth that much!!)
