Default Which is the better photo?

This is a photo I posted here some time ago:



But I have made some changes! I have added a little 'fog' and cloned out a few distractions!

I want to know if you think if this improves the photo? Or is it overkill?



Thanks,

Steve

I prefer the first one, although would be nice without the sign. The second one doesn't do much for me. Perhaps too much fog? In any case, I like the original better.

I like the first one, including the sign.

It looks like the sign is there describing the last remaing tree in an otherwise desolate landscape.

I also like the first one and like the sign, but couldn't figure out why. Then I read PeterP's take on the sign and realized - that's exactly it.

The first one. The second one is too blurry. My eyes keep trying to focus it properly, which is tyring!

BTW, I like the sign. Without it the picture just seems a bit too perfect.

OK.....it looks like I keep the first one!!!

I was trying to go for an 'African' ( :? ) look with the second one! I mean lots of heat and haze. But maybe now I can market it as the ultimate in 'eye exercise' and make myself a rich man!!!

Thanks for the feedback everyone!!

Besides agreeing with everyone as to which photo gets an 'A', I humbly submit that your signature should be subtle and not the first thing seen in the photo. That large, bright line of type is distracting.

The second one doesn't look foggy, just out of focus for me. :|
