Hello not sure if I can do this post 2 in 1.
But help is needed one help I am not sure which one of these works better.I like the shadow of the light leading up the path (1) but at the same time think it over throws the composition and maybe looks better without the shadow like in(2).Any help or comments would be appreciated.
Thank you

The shadow could work but you definitely need to have the whole shadow in the frame and not have it too close to the edge, either, as the eye following along its length will shoot out of the photograph. I think that the problem you're having may be that your composition lacks a strong focal point for the eye to rest on.

Thank you DRicherby I appreciate your comment.Like you, I think with this one the shadow does not work as it is a bit distracting.
Thanks again
