Two pics of a row of pollard willows in various stages of decay. The landscape version places the trees in their rural setting. The portrait version emphasizes the whimsical shapes of the trees. I have a slight preference for the landscape version, because of the balance between water and land, and because of the different horizontal and vertical lines in the composition.

I like them both but for different reasons.

#1 is a fine composition, as described by Mike.

#2 has that wonderful quirky tree in the foreground, breaking ranks and diving into the water. It has a strange head and arm with claws, both nicely reflected in the water. It is indeed from a fairytale. Taken in the moonlight, this could be really creepy.
