    Iceland - Black sand beach.
    First was taken with 14-42X, second with 20mm/1.7. Which do you like more? :smile:

    Tough to say because they are 2 different types of shots:

    -People/no tire tracks
    -Tire tracks/no people

    Very different shots. I prefer the composition of the first since the people bring you into the picture and because it also shows the varied texture of the surf better, bringing a bit more life to the shot. But you can see a bit better detail in the second shot on the sea islands.

    Both very nice, but I prefer the second shot. The colors are more vivid, and the tire tracks give some perspective.

    nice, I've always wanted to travel to Iceland with my camera. From all the images I've seen, the only problem is I may never want to leave. :smile:

    The first one is great! Better angle, the waves and the people.
