Manana Sunrise

    Newer Older

    Got up early (0330 hrs) to meet some Hawaii Photo Forums folks in Waimanalo. Our goal was to photograph the sunrise over Rabbit Island (Manana.) It was a lofty goal for me considering I was in the company of seasoned photographers (and the fact that I had to function on 3 hours of sleep.) It was a great meet-up with some great peeps. Thanks all!

    Nikon D7000, Nikkor 16-35mm f/4.0G, with Fader ND MK II to slow the shutter, and two Hitech ND Grad filters (Hard 0.6 and Hard 0.9) handheld to balance the exposure. (Not a good idea to stack filters, but tried anyway.) Two-stop OE, WB tweaked for more orange, and camera set to "Vivid." SOOC, conv. to JPEG in CNX2.

    MSSQUID, pareidolic, R_MD, and 6 other people added this photo to their favorites.
