Just wanted to know everyone's opinion which one do you like better? This one or the one in the previous post: Thanks. #350794

I personally like the first one better; however, this is a nice shot too. I think the reason I like the first more, is because you don't see the extending dune on the bottom, so you get more of a "tropical island" feel from it.

That said, would you like to know where to mail my plane tickets? LOL #2129200

Michelle R. Kovach November 28, 2005

They are both Gorgeous Jay!
I like the first one better myself but they are great either one! #2131646

Going against the popular vote here, I prefer this one. The composition seems better (atleast to me). I like how my eye follows the land all the way to the fort. The different colors of the water are very cool as well as the waves crashing ashore at the bottom. Very nice work Jay. You are right...I am ready to fly now.
