Two different shots of same helicopter. Would appreciate some feedback on which one is preferred.

First I like as it focuses on the livery, but would it get "Bad People"?

Second I also like, but a bit different angle.

Your opinions?

Great shots! I think bad_people doesn´t apply for people inside an aircraft, I guess it must be the same for helicopters.
For starters, I would say that your pics are not level, are they?

Cheers!

I'd definitely go for the second one. The first one is a questionable motive with the tail cut off, and I do think the recognizable pax might be a problem.

Nice shots, I definitely like the 2nd one better as well.

Hey Pete,
I'd go with the second one.

Thanks gang.

Quoting Lanas (Reply 1):

Level to the world, but not to the helicopter. The landing area for these choppers was straddling a drainage swale so the ground is very unlevel. The boreal forest trees in the back are on the average sraight - they tend to be leaning left/right in random patterns.
