    Caimi -From my aesthetics the second is not a stable or cohesive composition. The visual weight of the 2 broad parallel bands across its center overwhelm the structure and its reflection. Even if you could shoot from another vantage point to remove the grass' reflection the separation is too great. Also from my perspective the difference in values between top and bottom makes it visually bottom heavy.

    -Chrome

    Below: The middle of original composition has been removed not as a suggestion for a compositional change to the image, but a value comparison between top and bottom.

    In retrospect: It appears that you have altered the values between top and bottom in the B+W version.

    I did, Chrome. And I agree that the color version is not as effective.
