For me, the butt in #2 seems to point toward empty space.

I might be tempted to do something more like this:

I prefer #1, much less empty space and closer to the "rule of thirds".

This thread has a poll in it... "I Voted".

I like #2 because the scene as a whole feels like it adds to the story and the context. I actually thought that white thing on the roof is a block of snow/ice.

#1 feels a bit tight but I still like the composition with the tree balancing the photo to the left.

Dammit, now I like #1 more.
