I think this one looks better with a black background... press "L" to see for yourself.
Here's another from Wailea, Maui...I know its similar to my recent Lava Flow post (with the same blown out sky), but I really liked the dead coral in the surf with the lava rock. I also think the gold accents (from hotel lighting) on the wet rocks provide a unique glow to the shot.
This is an exposure blend of two images:
ISO 200,30 seconds @f/8 for the surf, and ISO 200, 8 seconds @ f/8 for the sky.
10mm on 1.6x sensor then cropped slightly in photoshop to lose some of the distracting features.
Thanks for taking a look!
