The image already looks supernatural so I think the green pool really fits. That is my favorite but they are both great images!

Very cool shots. Kinda curious how you got access to the geyser. When I looked into going there some years ago, access was virtually impossible since it was on private property and the owners didn't want a bunch of photographers milling around. Has that changed?

FWIW...I like the green pools. To my eye, it makes the image more unique.

The green is growing on me.


Ha ha.... yeah, green seems to be taking over here. I should have saved this one for St Patricks Day I think...

Thanks Jack, I am glad you liked the green pool version. As for getting onto there, nothing has changed, it's the same policy, that's why I said I was able to get onto there from a friend of a friend of a friend. I guess I should have added a friend of the family that owns the property. So I was just totally fortunate to have the right connection of friends who in the end are old friends with the family.

Hey Jim,

Both are terrific, but, sorry, Sonny, but I like No. 2 a lot better.

The scene is otherworldly enough and the green pool seems to be piling on. Plus green pool distracts a little from the geyser, which is the main event. I think No. 2 has enough nice, little bonus features -- the cloud movement, stars and splash of light on the horizon.

This is a less-is-more choice for me.

Thanks Glenn, it's great to have a few votes for the non-green version also, just so that I know I am not totally crazy!

One word "wow"... Just an amazing capture... Both are unique, the green does add a little bit more flavor to the image.... I'll pick that one, #1, as the favorite but the second one is just a hair behind...

Jim,

Outstanding capture... both the versions. I like the green pool a wee bit more, it's somehow a bit more mystic. However, the sky in this version has a magenta tone which I don't like. Nevertheless, both are stunning!

Hi Jim,

Both shots work really well. Each has it's own feel and beauty. Nicely done, indeed.

Holy moley, Jim - that's amazing for so many reasons. The green water gilds the lilly in my opinion and I'd leave it out.
