The second on the other hand, the second is sublime and deserves to be on a wall. I love it for the tones, the ripples, the shapes, the negative space provides peace and comfort.

I would like #1 if...there was a bit more water detail or maybe a bit darker and not quite so bright foreground, and scrub out the log on right side that abuts the frame. I was going to say crop, but I do love the aspect as presented (there's also a smudge in upper left corner). I am very attracted to the composition and do feel the heron is the subject - maybe because I would have been delighted to discover and most definitely would have shot.

I think the second is marvelous. Love all the negative space. Looks like the bird is standing on an alligator. Matt
