Yeh I'm pretty sure the pp'd one is the more popular, especially seeing them together for the 1st time, but still how does the 1st one rate as zero pp, not even cropped, photo? For me it portraits mood much better, being there at the time.
Thanks for your comments, appreciate them much

Have to say, being there under almost perfect conditions was Awesome!

Well, that is an interesting comment. If all you want is veracity, then this is a record picture and your own recollection is the only thing that matters.

But since you asked for other people's opinions - people who weren't there - I assumed you were after an artistic appraisal, and I stick with my opinion. Obviously opinions differ, but for me, artistically, the weak colour does nothing at all; I prefer the second picture, but I'd accentuate the colours a little more.
