Of the two, I think I like the other one better as well, though both are good compositions. I think they could be helped by being lightened up a bit, the tree, especially in this one, looks too dark to me. You were so lucky to be able to go there!

 Thank you Joe for your input!

I was in a long trip, a very interesting and adventurous one in Patagonia

Three are the most dominant and iconic elements of this part of the globe. The vastness of the pastures…… the so called Pampas, the extremely high and sharp rocky peaks of the mountain ranges, and the Glaciers, which are the most white/clean, and the most easily accessible to human observation

In that sense, and in this picture which I like most of the two, all the game is the advancing Glacier ( 2m per day ) with its inconceivable texture, huge crevices with the turquoise/blue colors, and the noise of the cracking junks of ice when they collapse into the lake !

In view of this spectacular landscape (I added some more pictures) believe me the least you could see was this poor tree

In that crystal clear day (luckily) I had only two choices! Either to reveal the grandiosity of the Glacier itself or to reveal the foliage of the tree

What would you do?

As I don’t know how to play tricks with the Photoshop (I actually tried to increase the brightness for the reason you mentioned….. unsuccessfully) I preferred to print it this way

I like this one most because the dialogue between the two protagonists of this photo ( Glacier&Tree ) is purely genuine and absolutely straight forward, free of other distractions like perspective as Avi mentioned in the other picture, or elements like the granite boulder in the foreground!

I thank you once more for your time and commentJ)! 

We are like a thread in a huge fabric of generations !

 I love the composition on this one, it really has so much potential - if the foreground and tree were just that bit lighter I think it would be the strongest image in the set.
