Thank you for everyone chiming in with their picks.

Gary- As WD mentioned spotlights can be used and makes a huge difference.
My pieces are printed into aluminum and the colors pop much more than any
paper so they seem brighter than what one sees on their computer screens.
When doing home showings or sometimes may even visit a persons home to view
the spot they intent to hang the piece, the brightness may be adjusted for
the particular area, but this happens very rarely since many of my clients are
art collectors and have lighting already set up for this purpose.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

I understand what you guys mean about the lighting. I know it makes all the difference, it's just not likely to happen around our place. I think they are both beautiful though.

I prefer the first image - second one just loses some of its balance and feels too bright in the foreground. At least when I toggle back and forth, that brighter foreground just doesn't mesh as well with the dark sky. Also, the water looks almost like computer graphics, with a scale issue caused by the extreme perspective.

These two photos evoke two very different emotions from me. The first gives me a sense of calm and awe, while the second arouses a slight sense of turmoil, like the world could be ending with that magical sunset and the boiling water in the foreground.

Both are very nice, thanks for posting.

Normally, I would prefer #1, I love a great reflection. But I think #2 is more memorable, and distinctive. Both are tremendous.
