Disregarding my strong dislike for Flash - at least the site is faster than most Flash sites -, I also prefer 2. Blue on black is a very poor choice for type, though. It's practically unreadable on many cheaper monitors even with good vision, and especially projectors.
My main complaint is that the home page looks like a gallery page, but when I click on an image it goes to a new page with an entirely different layout. This is inconsistent and confusing. Same with colors: there's orange and blue type, which are only used on the Home and Contacts pages - the palette should be consistent across the site. I'm also not sure what's the point of viewing a single photo by clicking on it, since it doesn't make the photo any bigger. The photos are also quite small in their largest version.
Finally, there appear to be more than a thousand pictures. In case that's how you have planned the site, I would suggest presenting only your very strongest work, instead of putting it all up there. It's better to do the editing yourself rather than expecting your visitors to scour through hundreds and hundreds of photos. Not too many people have time or patience to do that these days. This is unless you're building a stock photo portfolio, of course.
Some excellent work there. I especially like the smoking gentleman in Ghana gallery. I'd link to it but since it's Flash I can't - yet another reason to dislike Flash.
