Very cute! I might play with letting the white lines just float over the already dark background of the building - that would give you another color to play around with if you wanted (maybe a gold sun?).

I like the clean simplicity of this. It is interesting to have a landscape scene that is contrary to what you find in SFO. :) I think some pops of color (such as the flowers of the cacti, filling in some of the clouds with white, maybe some green on the yuccas could add another layer of interest.

I picked B. I love the way that green pops against the black background. I'm not sure about the red, though (it's hard to see in such a small view!). Might be worth experimenting with leaving that white, or trying a slightly different color. Either way, nice job!

Thanks for the feedback! I've created a poll with a color option. You got it! The wow factor is that the scenery is so opposite to that of San Francisco!

I picked A because I love the simplicity of black and white.
