Deconstructing or cropping a mixed media painting, abstract painting by Chris Hobel

I  posted the steps to making this painting in a slide show on an earlier blog
Lots of layers, acrylic paint, pencils,pastels.... good fun but it got a bit busy so Ive given it the chop

After looking at it for a while I decided to either reassemble it into a collage or just select bits I liked to make smaller paintings
 I like this one above


and this one above also.... I think its the  PINK
Which ones do you prefer?
