Both are just beautiful, Randy. Love the colors, comp. and light. I like more of the sky showing in the second one.

Thanks Tammy - after uploading and having a chance to see side-by-side, I think I agree with you. It was a beautiful Harvest moon morning to be out. -Randy

Both are beautiful but my preference is the one with more sky. It's STUNNING!

While I like both images, I agreee with Tammy and do like the one with more sky. Either way, they're wonderful OM! When I first saw the thumb, I thought that patch of red was an OM hunkered down. LOL.

Thanks everyone. Honored. I also like them both, but did follow up on the suggestions above and submitted the second as well, however I think they straddle Sept/Oct.

Beautiful light and colors, Randy! I like them both. In the one with less sky, I pay more attention to the fog, which creates a nice mood in the image. Congratulations on your finalist, and good luck in the next round!
