(Mod) - Opera House runner

By GavMc
This is a zoom-and-crop modification of my last post - of a runner making her way up the Opera House steps in Sydney. I think it works well, so I'm posting it in its own right.

I made two versions - based on the thirds rule - this one has more sky, and the other one (which I've put up as a mod) has more foreground - the steps.

I think this is a stronger thumbnail - even though the other one has the lead-in benefit of the foreground I think its sky is over-cramped.

Which do you prefer?

The other thing I tried on these two pix was upping the hue and saturation. Not sure if I've over done it a bit? Again, comments welcomed!

Thanks for looking..

I prefer the mod, the one with more foreground. I liked the "double" before, but this has more impact.
