Hello Don Jose!
This is a great shot, and either presentation shows an interesting scene in a creative way.
Only because you ask, I offer my opinion. The workshop version is superior mostly due to the fact that it raises the central horizontal line (the small stone wall and the woman) closer to a "thirds" line. Sometimes, I feel that I am a slave to the Rule of Thirds, and I do not want to be an evangelist for it, but here, it produces a more balanced composition. In the main version, it seems the top 2/3-to-3/4 of the frame is heavy, dense, and does not contribute sufficiently to the composition.
Have you tried dodging both the woman and the main piece of sculpture (the "cross" piece)? I will try to find time to play with this shot and if I can add some highlighting to the woman and sculpture, I will post a workshop, too!

Votre remarque est très stimulante.
Mon appétit pour les moules, cependant, est très forte.
Nous avons faim ; nous mangeons ; parfois, nous prenons la vie pour nous nourrir.
Nature est remplie de défis. L'esprit de l'homme est rempli de questions éthiques.
Je ne mange pas les animaux de la terre. Mais les poissons et crustacés me ravissent.
Chacun doit choisir où il dessine la ligne.
Y a-t-il un pain beurré restant ?
Meilleurs voeux de Austin, au Texas !

A great set of colors, Lisa, with that mysteriously dark pool in the bottom! I love the way the terraced quarrying reveals the differing compositions of the stone -- fascinating!
Studying the pool, I wonder if this is one of your specialty long-exposure shots?

A stunning postcard, Deniz, of an obviously challenging scene, The multiplicity of light sources may mean that we just have to accept that some of them will be overexposed and some will be underexposed, and overall your "average" looks great, but (in the friendly spirit of TE, of course!) allow me to ask -- what could have been done about the overexposure of the bridge in the foreground? And since I'm picking nits (does that phrase translate?), on my monitor I see two patterns in the sky -- a set of wavy lines across the top of the frame that could be clouds, okay -- but then a large spot on the left side that is... what? a lens flare?
You know I respect your work and study your artistry, so please take no offense!
