Half wall vs railing?

I noticed that vast majority of people prefer some form of railing over a generic half wall. I am not really sure whether the picture will describe it well but basically this is a staircase immediately to the right of the entrance and faces the foyer rather than a family room. I would definitely consider railing if it was facing a 2-story great room to add openness to it but in this case, I am not really sure whether it will be worth doing the railing. I also posted a 2nd picture with a half wall aling the staircase that will mimic what I will have in my new build. What are your thoughts on this?
