I vote for the one without the tower. The tower breaks up the continuity of the surrounding color. (IMHO) Best regards,

It is difficult to answer your question because the images are very small. I'd say that the tower will be an interesting element in a large print, but becomes a small distraction in the small internet version. Of course, the perspective will remain the same.

Both images look vastly different to me...both taken at different perspectives (#1 is higher above the flowers vs #2 which is closer to flower-level).

Even though #2 is from a lower perspective, it also appears to show a wider beach area. Also, the one without the Tower shows a different ocean wave view as well as less contrast & green saturation.

Unusual and attractive views. I like them both, but (for me) the tower has to have purpose to be in the shot. If it has unique historical or architectural significance then viewers must be made aware of it in some way. If not, the other image is probably preferred.
Personally .. I like it!
