I saw your post of the second image on FB. I love this image! You are truly painting with beautiful light! I can't quite put it in to words but the "mood" and "feel" of the Tunnel's shot is spectacular!
#2 is a strong image, great luminosity. Those Na Pali cliffs look amazing from every angle. Tried to get some images from an open cockpit helicopter once but the downdraft meant a lot of camerashake in my hands (inexperiemnced in such cuircumstances).
