tough one.#2 looks better small, i like the hand and wings more visible; big, it's a little overlit#1 has more detail of the angel, better light-balance but wings are less obvious.
Funny. I thought similarly: #2 is better small. #1 is better large.
i'm with the others! i was all set to say #2 from the small pics and then changed my mind to #1 with the bigger.
I think #2 looks overlit when it's right under #1. It doesn't seem too bright when I look only at it without the other in view. Even so, I make my decision based on your desciption of where the angel is: "nestled among trees--further up, deeper in--the sleepy folds of the cemetary". I think the "mood" of #1 fits with that description.
The first one shows a better sense of age and weather damage on the statue, which makes the angel a much more interesting character.
