Hi Everyone. Here's another view of Ke'e Beach in Haena at the end of the winding road on Kauai. This was taken just before sunset. I really liked how it turned out however I had to downsize and cut down the resolution quite a bit for TL upload and it really lost a lot of detail.. Almost makes it look out of focus so I'm disappointed there, wish all could see the full resolution image. Oh well. Anyways I tonemapped in Photomatix, and adjsuted the levels and such in PSCS2. Enjoy!

Wow, it's spectacular!! I like this picture so much. I like the sky, the colour, the composition and your use of light. Thank you for share.

Wonderful scene Jeremy, your obviously a skilled photographer and quite handy with PM as well.
I'm sure the full res image is very good, but there is no shame to this cut down version, it is stunning.

TFS, Gary

Hi, Jeremy,

Superb PP you've done there. By leveling the clouds, it makes the photo more dramatic.


Ciao Jeremy,

Very nice!
