I seem to like the composition of the first one better but in full view the leaves in the forground have badly burnt out highlights since apparently the sun peaked out in that spot (I wish it didn't as the rest of the image is in the shade).

Below is the second shot where everything was in the shade but I different composition:

Maybe it's just me but in either image the lamp post pulls me down to the bottom right side and I find it distracting.

I quite prefer the second shot. The reflection in the window and the richer color really does it for me.

Largely, I agree with both comments so far. The one thing I miss in the second shot, though, is the high contrast of the tree leaves from the ivy. It seems like a wild intrusion in the first shot, and a bland variation in texture in the second.

Number 2 gets my vote. The tree limbs in number 1 detract from the flowing ivy.

This shot is a few blocks away from my job so I can easily reshoot. Most of the time this area will be in the shade/shadow so bright sunlight doesn't shine on it except for late afternoon.

Any suggestions on what to try (if possible) if I reshoot the scene?
