Between the two versions, this is the best. Both in composition and processing. And, contrary to the first comment, I think the sunlight sneaking behind the tree gives the image more... erm.. character.
Thanks alot! Yes I'm with you. I like this version better than the other one as well. The thing with the sunlight. Without this little beam coming through in my opinion the picture would be a little "flat". Now there is this bit of dynamic going on.
