I'm hoping to get a few opinions on which one of these 2 shots people on this board prefer.

Very dramatic shots, love the perspective...I like the first one better. The twp pillars standing vertical controls the horizontals and the triangulation of the warming sun sets this composition nicely.

Thanks, I was kind of leaning that way myself.

I like the second one, it has a happier glow.

I think the second one has a better balance of color, although I do like the use of space in the first. I'd go with the second.

Personally - I like the first. I think the second one has too much "glow" to it and I prefer the lines of the first. That first one drew me in much more than the fantasy feel of the second.

Now, I have a question; are these shots "as is" or have they been color adjusted?

The first one has the person in the water and a little less HDR extreme. I like em both though...flip a coin

I like the second shot. I like how the wave is breaking just above your name. It looks more alive to me. The first one looks too static for me.

But of course it's just a personal preference.
