What you guys thought about the original opening shot below. The one I chose was a slightly doctored photo from SoCal. There was only one guy, it wasn't all that gloomy and he wasn't in trouble or descending into an architectural "vanishing point." Still, I felt lucky to find it having spent only a single long weekend in California.
vs. the original version ...
This is a composite of some strange stuff. The altered backdrop is a free diving level shot off La Jolla when I was looking to photograph some seals. No joy on that, one just bounced up behind me for a verbal goose before vanishing.
The stuffed shark lives outside Innsbruck, Austria in Schloss Ambras along with some other interesting/strange museum pieces.
Our tiburon bud, hanging around. I would sue the plastic surgeon that put those stitches in.
So, which is better, the one that was used or the latter one?
