Made by Nature or made by man?

Here's the question which might sound silly to some. You get a new lens for your camera. What is the first photograph you take with it? An object in nature of a manmade object?

From my new job shooting for a newspaper, I learned quickly that photo editors aren't interested in Nature scenes but trashier people, unless of course that piece of nature is news.

What appeals to our human nature? Are we hardwired to respond to the natural landscape or are we more intrigued with manmade objects if we find them to be aesthetically appealing?

Which one of these two do you prefer? Why?
