I like both honestly. The open look gives a feeling of being way out from the farm in a wide open field which is particularly nice.
The more crowded, original, version has this sweet "secret" feeling to it. Like we're peeking into a scene not meant to be seen. Deep inside the apple orchard in a place only these two know about where they can go to relax and get away from the pressure of work.
Since AJ is such a hard worker I don't think she would want to be seen napping in the middle of the day. But that's my own views and like i said, I like both.
Thank you so much for the critique. It's an incredible difference with a few key changes, I can take a lot back from this. Thanks again for doing the reddit AMA and this critique, it's been very informative and helpful.
