    In the Groove #2

    This one was taken about 10 minutes after sunset without photogs. Curious what preference folks have?

    While the first was great and included the photogs, the second has more natural intrest with the water coming back down off the rocks. Hmm, add the photogs to the 2nd?

    I really like the look of the one taken after sunset and the water coming off the rocks adds more dimension and texture to the force of the water. However, I do like the colors in the second one, the rocks just shine and the photogs do make it a bit more interesting...but they are both beautiful!! You're lucky to be in such a photographic and serene place.

    That's a tough choice to make, quite apart from the presence or absence of the two small figures. Overall, I probably prefer the shot without the photographers, simply because I enjoy seeing and showing nature "as she is" without human interference. But I suspect I would be in the minority.

    I also quite like the veil-like flow of the water in the narrow channel, and the color really attracts my attention. Maybe it's not as realistic as the "before sunset" version, but, hey, it works for me.

    In the end, both shots are great!
