[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good afternoon. Looking forward to seeing all of your photos. More snow last night so I needed another escape. Here is a shot of the Hanalei River Valley on Kauai, taken with my Sony wide angle lens. Every morning we would run into Foodland for a hot cup of coffee and a 'low calorie pastry,' drive across to this overlook and enjoy breakfast while taking in this view. Rain or shine there was no place else I would rather have been. Not my best shot of this amazing place but I hope you like it. Have a great week!

Hi Lori,
Beautiful PoV to have breakfast and great for this shot - would like to have seen it a bit bigger but the colours are beautiful and the curve of the river takes you right into the scenery. Best wishes

Lovely view Lori - really nice scene and well composed with the river at a 1/3 from right and the horizon at 1/3 from top. Beautiful saturation!

Would love to see this at 800 pixels :-)

Hello Lori,
A beautiful view of a tranquil place. Thank you for sharing. Best wishes.

I wouldn't mind waking up every morning and have breakfast while watching this view. Beautiful capture, it makes me homesick of the Philippines. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Good colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Lori!
Beautiful landscape, captured with good light and vivid colours. Very well composed.
It's a pity for the small format...you can post 800x600 pixels :)
Ciao! Vanda

HI Lori, what a beautiful landscape and your photograph of it is fantastic. Very well composed, perfect POV, vivid colours. It looks great, just inviting to come along there:-)))
Regards Rose

A lovely view, Lori, and so well composed, to the rule of thirds. You are doing yourself a disfavour by posting such small shots. I'm sure your shot would be even better 800 pixels.

Oops! just seen your w/s.
So much better!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
