Design Mistake? – Not Sure

I made the lower frame which will support the legs for the breakfast tray.  For the joinery, I stayed true to the Greene and Greene style and used finger joints.  There were two ways to do the finger joints: one where they are symmetrical with the bridle joints in the tray and one were they are not.  I thought, for visual interest, that I’d make them unsymmetrical, but now I am second guessing myself.  Don’t you hate that?  Which way do you think looks better? And by the way, I already made them unsymmetrical so there is no going back.  I’d like to hear from you to get your preference anyway.
