Here is one I took from January of last year that I have revisited with a some new post processing techniques. Since the way I process my photos always changes, I find it very important to always save the original RAW files because I'll always come back to older stuff to see if I can make it look better than I did when post-processed initially. So here it is :)

Wow. I hardly ever comment on photos (shame on me), but this image is amazing. The contrast between the sand and city, the darkness of the patch on the foreground clearly outlining the footsteps; the sky, the colours. Very nice!

(I haven't seen the previous version, did you post it on the weblog?)

Cool composition, it's like two seperate scenes (most obvious in 1024x968 resolution). Nice colours too.
