Haven't decided yet, Andrew. I need to lay out both, side-by-side, in my studio and glance at them as I walk by for a few days. Then I'll decide. I have a lot of wall space in corridors in the lower part of our hillside house where we converted the original integral garage into workrooms and storage spaces. I already have several pairs of related pictures hung one above the other along the halls. I'll probably do something similar with these. I may even decide in the end that I like Slobodan's version better and hang it by itself. Time will tell.
Sorry Larry, I don't agree. As I said, I was conflicted about the road when I got out of the car, but I couldn't keep the whole row of trees to camera left without including at least some of the road, so that removed all doubt. I've since come to the view that the road is an essential part of the picture.
There's still some wabi sabi out there on the prairies, but not nearly as much as there used to be when I started photographing this part of the country back in the sixties. Check http://www.russ-lewis.com/photo_gallery/Ruins/index.html

And Doug, it was Slobodan's re-imagining. I just used part of his idea.
