Portrait for the Win?

This week’s Photo Challenge wants to see one image shot two ways. I often take two photos, one landscape (wider than tall) and one portrait (opposite). After years of doing this, it was only when assembling images for this post that I discovered that I always prefer the portrait result. The scene feels closer and more immediate. Nonetheless I expect to continue to take photos from both perspectives.

What do you think? Are there shots here where you prefer the landscape?
