My first impression was that I was looking at the Sea of Cortez; I've never been there, unfortunately, but I was struck by some wonderful images I saw years ago in a yachting magazine. The place was fantastic (in the shots, at least) and they would have been worth millions to the tourist department there had they ever seen them. It was in the great days of the polarizer.
I prefer the horizontal shot, but not so fond of the slo-mo blur that I think I see. It's a technique done to death and ultimate boredom, but hell, what else can you do if you think that a great view just isn't enough?
