Comparing Art with AI Art

The following is a light-hearted contest between a real artist from the Yate and Sodbury U3A and an AI Art tool. Below are two images, one of which is an AI creation and the other is a photograph of a real painting. Both are inspired by the same scene - a river flowing through woodland. Can you easily tell which is which?
