Honolulu, Hawai'i - Oahu

This cityscape was taken with an 85mm f/1.8 lens. It was the only one I had available to me at the time. This is a hand-held shot taken wide open (f/1.8).

 

I used the poster edges effect to make it appear painting-like.

 

Next time I'm up there I'll have a wide-angle lens.

 

Probably best viewed at least large.

    Were you here enjoying our beautiful skyline and you didn't say hi?

    This is pretty fantastic! I don't think I have been up in any of those tall buildings and definitely not at night. It is a pretty impressive view.

    Lucy, I was over there working on a project with a recording studio to provide photographic artwork for an upcoming CD which will be released by a local recording artist.

    I'll be back in Honolulu this Sunday to shoot the actual recording session.

    Unfortunately I'm gonna be tied-up from the moment I get there until I leave that same evening, as was the case the day/evening this photo was taken.

    I'll slip ya a couple extra "Hi!'s" when I see you on the 16th.

    Bill Shooting the cover art ... sounds very cool. Now I have to go look up Tantalus, where exactly is this place everyone else knows just from the stunning view?
  • Bill Adams 8y

    Here is information on Tantalus Lookout.

    The road used to loop around, putting you back down into town. It's now blocked-off for some reason.

    Be careful up there, as per Kyle's story, above.
