Technique aside, I think clearly photo #1 has a big advantage of having a person looking on with an interesting pose and expression which adds a lot to the picture. We wonder who that person is in relation to the birthday woman, and what is he thinking. In fact I'd argue the man IS the subject of the photo, not the lady blowing out the candles. Obviously it was good technique though to frame that person well in the picture. In photo #2 the person looking on looks plain bored and kills the mood.
