Generally speaking, when a photo has a distant subject, as is the case in these, I find foreground elements to be a distraction. (So I'm going to go against the grain here (Surprise! Surprise!) and say that I prefer the second.
You know, sometimes you've got to go against the grain! Anyway, that's been a pleasant surprise I've been expecting : ) After all, as I mentioned above, it was a tough decision for me to chose which one to post, whichconsequently urged me to post both!Thank youfor providing your valuablereason also.Well, I think the point is; to what extendthe foreground 'adds to' or 'steals from' the thesubject matter, in which case the heavenly opening among the massiveclouds is responded by its reflection on the groundwhich justifies the presence of the foreground I think...

Number one seems to me to be much stronger and dramatic composition. The path of light from the hole in the clouds all the way to the pavement is enforced by the counter angle of the dock. The post in the front center is a little troublesome but still acceptable as a compositional element. I think that the darker area to the right of the post works, it helps define the transition from dark to light.


In the first place, thank you for the tack sharp and rich feedback!

Your mentioning the transition from dark to light isa good point indeed, as well as a compliment for the images : )As for the post,I preserved it as a compositional element for the quay (as you mentioned) along with anotherpost to the leftin distancefor the sake of sweet perspective : )
