I'm in two minds over this. My first inclination is the 1st because of the angle of the shot making use of a 24mm lens, but the descending arches w/ the weeds draws me in on the 2nd. What do you say?

I can't answer which one, without knowing what you want to do with it/ what do you want it to say?
Personally, the white blown out skies detract from both of these.

I don't want to do anything with them. Just photos of concrete structure, nothing more for me. I don't think there's anything I can do about bright sky, especially w/ basic Mac's free 'Photo' editing program that's included w/ my iMac.

I find the second image stronger. I would crop at the top of the first arch- and lose a lot of the blown out sky.
Eventually you may want to get some type of editing program. Adobe with lightroom and photoshop is likely the most popular- it is about $10/month.
All our images are edited. Either we let the camera do it, or we take control ourselves.

Thanks, was thinking of cropping as you say but didn't want to change format. I'll reconsider.

The first one for me. Try a B/W treatment to give it some grit.
I generally love B&W but it didn't think it worked as well. Here's a quick edit. What do you think?

If your not going to do anything with the image, why worry about aspect ratio? FWIW......many people crop according to what is best for the image .......

I crop when need be, but don't think a square-ish image compliments arches.
