Two different takes on the same idea .... which do you prefer?

I vote for the first. It has an elegant simplicity, and the dark form coming in from the right makes the image.
The second one has an additional dark form moving in from the right, and the tension between the two feels to me as if it contradicts the mood expressed by the tonalities of the rest of the image.

Tomorrow I might prefer the second, however.

I find these well seen and nicely balanced. Good work!

I like both as well, but I find the darker green strip in the second image, combined with the two triangular shapes created by the white and green creates a wonderful visual tension that almost "throbs" against the rest of the image that while pleasant to the eye serves more as accentuation than emphasis... Very nicely thought out and executed.

Like Eric, I prefer #1, though both are very good.

The greater saturation of the blue at the top of both images runs a little out of balance with the rest, for me.  I like them and holding my hand above them gets me involved, but is awkward.

I like both too but my preference goes to number 2, I like the curves of the horizon and beach…

These are really beautiful!  I think I have to go for the first one - but I just want to crop the top 1/3 off and make it a square ( I like squares).  A picture that defies pixel-peeping!

No question: the second wins my vote.

I vote for number two, as Tim mentioned- better balance.

The can work together in a diptych (or triptych, if you have more versions). You can actually make a triptych from these two, by putting #1 in the center, #2 on the left and a flipped #2 on the right. Just a thought.

Thanks, all!  Still haven't had a chance to print them yet, but I am home so I will probably print a few up.

It's a large series of exposures.  A triptych is an interesting idea ...

And very much a sign of indecision.

Very nice. It looks like the second image is about half stop darker, or it is simply processed with greater contrast. The first is soft and subtle like most of my unprocessed jpeg files. I now look at both soft and sharp verrsions and almost always choose the subtler version. But this always depends on the subject and what you are trying to convey. I am curious as to why you chose the portrait format over the landscape. The shapes and lateral movement suggest a landscape format for me. Nevertheless, a fine image.

The Big Island vote goes to #2.  It has more secret sauce.

The second was more heavily processed and went to PS and back ... I'll leave the recipe out of the discussion for now.

Funny you should say that ... I was working on some up-scaled versions and using other crops like squares and stretched out horizontals.  I'll attach one ...

Nevertheless, a fine image.

Thanks!  It was an image I had in my head before I ever even got to the island.  Things rarely work as planned in my experience, but this one came out just as I had hoped.

The horizontal, unlike the verticals, makes me believe the deep blue.

I like them all, but the horizontal is my favorite. Very satisfying.
