Hi Richard,

I prefer the first one. The only gain for me in the two alts is the tilt of
the head. The original has a very strong sense of soaking up the sun  which
would get an extra boost from the head tilt but overall I think the first
one has everything needed for a fine shot. I think that having been
impressed with it at first viewing I sort of fixed on the original.
