I think I like the bottom one.
Bottom! I love it!
I like the top one because of the placement of the sun, and the pronounciation of the sun. I think if you brightened the overall value, i think that is the feeling that people are responding to in the bottom one. it feels bright and happy. like a brisk morning, with the sun peeking over the mountains. :)
I like the contrast in the top one, but you kind of lose some of those fun pine trees in the darker values of the mountains. So I like the trees in the bottom one.
my vote is for the bottom one. :)
top. The blue matches the intensity of the yellow, so the mountains are overpowered by the yellow.
The top is the best, by far.
I like the top because it is a bit daker and stands out more!!! YOu painted Stanley!!! :)
