Second one - mainly becuse the bridge stops my eye from leaving the page more..Flickr stream.

I'd go for the first one simply because people look at an image from left to right in my view. So leaving the left section empty and starting from the right might be a way to 'shock' the viewer perhaps or make a more 'unconventional' shot. For me, however, the first is more pleasing to the eye. Great shots, though.

Interesting...I find the image "reads" both ways.
In the first image you follow the bridge "into" the image, but arrive at "nothing." Since there is nothing solid to anchor the eye it wanders back.
In the second you follow the bride from "nothing" out of the image, but end at something "defined" and to anchor the eye. But since it's "out of" the image the eye wanders back.
Neither image is "easy," but since the "point" of the image is the bridge fading off into nothing being engulfed by the fog, I suppose the first image might be "better." I really don't know what to do with it. The second image is how it was taken...

I kinda like the second image better. Maybe it's because I'm right handed. I don't know. But my brain seems to be more comfortable processing the second photo. Beautiful shots either way. Very nicely done.

The first one definitely works better for me! Funny how everyone's opinion is different on this Right vs left "sidedness"?Lisa
