Time of day

This image is the original version of shot #9 in the Coronado section of my website. I timed this shot for when the light would be coming in the room and bouncing off the floor to help light up the space and for when the pool house would be backlighted. About an hour and a half later I walked back into the room for something and saw what became the version on my website. Although we still had a lot of work to do I had to reshoot it. My assistant calls the second version the one with the “drastic” lighting. The interior designer prefers the original with the softer light which shows off her work but the architect prefers the version with the stronger light. Let me know what you think.
