There is so much about this image that just makes me love it, Scott.....I am really taken by the wonderful aqua clouds there to the right which do such a nice job contrasting with the bright bright sunrise light , then you come forward (or at least I do) to the surf..what an excellent stop of the waves..just perfect. The cliff on the left, frowning at the clouds (you know how cliffs can be like Grumpy sometimes) And then the smoothness of the water with your F22 settings...I have never been a fan of excessive "slowing" of moving water - I guess it depends on the scene - but this is awesome. So, I have taken a long time to tell you, Like Tracy, that I just want to be there... but this image is pretty much the same! Super special for sure. Scott, thank you very much for treating us to this wonderful piece!! It's really beautiful Cheers! dj

The sun looks a little burnt out, and the cliffs a liitle too black. I wonder if it wouldn't be good to use a single RAW to process in HDR. Would this be possible. It's such a beautiful image.

Very nice! I like this shot more then the one from the other day since you used a panoramic aspect ratio - maybe 3:1 or more. The harmonious colors of yellow, blue and green are an added gift that nature provided. I have been to Hawai'i and its tough to get a bad sunrise or sunset but you have made it even more spectacular. Have a nice day. P.S. We miss you at the MHPC meetings.

This is lovely, Scott! It is harder to find these images that we think, and you have done a good job with it. I appreciate the perspective and the crop as much as the light and the color.
