This actually makes me think of a book cover for some reason...maybe a story about romance on a little island somewhere... Hmmm...sounds nice! I need a vacation! Anyway, I love the wonderful sunset and the angle of the plane in silhouette. Your lettering is, as always, perfect for the composition. So pretty!
