I vote for the first one (by Jeremy, not Ivo).
Good catch.
A typical London scene?   ;)

With two images, I think we now have sufficient data for A.I. to reconstruct a full-body fox? Ivo can contribute the missing backside ;)

Jeremy,  I actually love the second one.  Sure its unconventional, but it shows the animal's face, and the engagement of his look in interesting.  I might lighten the background (or take it more to grey than the bluish tinge I see, and I might actually crop him a little more to the right (so that there no part of the front of his back leg showing fro a cleaner sweep if the body off the page).

The second shot reminds me of the many good model images I see where the photographer tries to highlight a portion of the face in a different way. There is something to what James says, a face peering as intensely at us as we gaze at it. Surely with the pure white unaffecting background that is what comes across.

Jeremy

For me, the second is far better.

The first shot is a fox in the center of the frame. The second shot takes advantage of the frame, it leads outside the frame. The fox is more in his habitat without seeing it, but it is there, because you use the frame.

Yes to both, but I agree that the second is special.

I agree. It gives the subject and its environment a wonderful tension.

Re the OP: it is a good start, as Americans would say. Us, Eastern Europeans, however... ;)

James, the bluish tinge seems to have been introduced in the JPEG rendering for posting here; it's not present in the original. Your suggested crop is a good idea.

Interesting, Oscar. I don't much like what it does to #1 (of mine), as I like the square crop; but your composition does enhance the effect I was seeking in #2. I'm not sure how you ended up with the pink snow, I must confess.

Of all four versions, the original first is still by far the best, for me.

Oh, probably Snapseed "smart" context aware fill taking a bit of fox along. It was just a quick & filthy edit on the tablet for illustrative purposes. Certainly didn't mean to suggest adding any color.
