Wow! Way to go with the Aerochrome look Amy! I don't think I have gotten a good Aerochrome image yet, so I always enjoy yours!
Both are super cool. I would put #1 as my favorite as I really like the way the palm trees are standing so distinctively and then also how the edge of the land angles across as it does. I find this one super strong. With #2 I sure like how there feels like there is a spot light down into the image, that's also super cool.
