Hi Keld! I like both shots presented. (The first thing that appealed to me were their lines and warm colours). In this I like the arrangement much, from the green leafy hangings up to the blue contrast-window. This one allows the forms and colours to unfold, but the other does show much more of their destination. I, got to admit, was flabbergasted by your description. This is a residential home?
Concerning details and forms, I'd prefer this one, but the other, showing the basement and the inhabitants, does, for me, definitely go with it and should not be separated from what you captured.
