Helicopter Shot - Preference Advice

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?

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.

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.
