B because of the large branch thrusting up from the bottom. Just like lightning, it forks and spreads itself throughout the picture to give a sense of vitality. Plus the stark contrast between dark brown and orange makes B feel that much more powerful.
a)hhhhh can't really explain. Really not sure. Just a slight edge, based on a more logical and clearer view of what the photo is about, verses the other one? I missed the majority by a mile on this one, huh. Hmmmm, wonder why.
Well, I've always been extremely analytical, but believe me, I dream... way too much. I think my brain was wired for both. And the fact that before my stroke in my 30s I was a good deal ambidextrous, might explain a lot of why/what I would/could do, too. I'm more analytical nowadays, because dreams just don't help me in my survival or recovery, and sometimes hurt too much, especially after reality kicks in again.
