Both lovely but I love the portrait version as it gives a better impression of the steepness of the climb.

I'm a big fan of benches in landscapes, Lillian and the setting is rather idyllic for this one. v1 for me, with all the steps showing and taking you into the image. v2 leads you out of the left.

For the Queen of wildlife these landscapes are superb.
I especially like the composition in V1 with those rustic steps taking us up and round the image.
Lovely colour and the seat just spells out relaxation!

What a delightful place to place the bench: I could sit there happily for hours.
Of your two versions, it's the landscape format that clicks the better with me, Lillian.
