I mean I think they both look pretty good, I'd be well pleased with them but I'm happy when I shot anything, haha. Personally I think there is a lot of data there, so much of it comes down to the post processing side of things. I thought I'd have a go at doing an edit as I'm waiting for my camera to finish up, this is what I got. I'm trying to learn to do gradient removal with out the use of a plug-in so the background could be a bit more uniformed.

Looks great seems to be such a hard target I found i could pull more colour out with less data which I found strange .
