I'm not talking about foliage quantity - it's quality that's important.

Note how in #22, the greenery obtrudes into the subject of the photo. Also, it's just all over the place - there's simply no form or structure to it. In #26, viewers can't fail to be impressed by the subtle way in which the cheese plant in the foreground complements the subject, softening the features and showing it in such a favourable light.

I'm going to put your comment down to 'artistic differences', but further adverse comments concerning the foliage in #26 will be severely frowned upon.
