I think the slightly darker version one works better for me.

V1 for me, the darker version gives more depth, a 3-D sense. Plus the frame in V2 is a little bit distracting.

great detail in this Fred, personally I prefer V1, not because of the border, but because V2 appears lighter and loses some detail.
A lovely shot,
Chris.
