I like the first one, but it seems too busy to me. Would have been awfully tempting to go and rip out all of those plants standing in the foreground (the nerve of them! Growing there like that...). I really like the second one. At first glance it made me want to tilt my head to the left to get the 'proper' perspective, until I realized that the mountains in the background are level and it just looks like the hillside is falling into the trees.
Did you use an on-lens filter for the tones, or adjust things in Photoshop after? Has an IR look to it.
