RS: The flash and composition of the second negates the nice qualities, even though the color balance is technically poor, of the top image. The mood and feel of the top picture draws me into it much more and even the color sort of gives it a bit of dream-like quality. Your expression in the top also seems more explorative while the below picture seems to be more of a snapshot someone caught of you hanging out. We talked about the composition of the top one being cleaner and having less distracting elements than the below photo. The composition seems far more considered.
