I need your opinion on some sample designs

Following on from my previous post: I am still not happy with the style of this site . I have come up with two examples of what I might come up with in a final design.

[[posterous-content:zqxxeqJytqJopjivooii]] Landscape Effect:
It is supposed to look like a sunny day.

[[posterous-content:kEhvasixECHzmhEuJECF]] Simplebits.com a like:
It is supposed to mimic the look of simplebits.com

Let me know what you think of either of them.
