The portrait seems to suit the subject more.

I only rarely shoot both. But in this situaltion I would have shot the portrait as it is, and for the landscape got lower, moved to the left to create more of an angle with the structure, and put the closest post at the corner of the frame.

Just depends on what your trying to say.

For instance vert images always give a since of height and horz images give you a since of space. If you are trying to convey a since of how vast this scene is then use the horizontal. If for some reason you think that height is something you want to emphasize then go with the vert.

Both are very strong compositions so it boils down to what are you trying to convey?

Vertical is a very nice capture.
