Definitely #2 - more dramatic composition and sky! A powerful picture.
Well done.

#2 also includes the water. 2 is my choice.

easy choice. #2 is much better, because of the sky. but the lighthouse is a bit too "centered" for my taste... it'd be a stronger composition if the lighthouse were moved a bit to one side.

Default Bigger pictures?

I really would have liked to see a bigger example of these two shots, like a 1024x783pixels? This would give a different 'punch' to especially #2 - I think.....

The test is rigged...

The lighthouse is much larger in number two and dominates the eye.

Both shots are great. I ain't gonna pick - So there!

Thanks everyone for your replies, I thought no. 2 would catch your attention, its the clouds that add to the composition I think.
