row of leds?

What is the best way to place eight LEDs to achieve greater distance? alongside a row or two rows one above the other?
this way:

OOOOOOOO

or

OOOO
OOOO

For bare leds, it doesn't matter. If you plan to put some focusing optics in front of the leds to narrow the beam, the two-row configuration would be better.
