Hawaiian Turtle Sunset

Newer Older

I recently returned from a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. The first night I was there I saw this group of turtles just resting here but at the time the sun was too high so after awhile I returned and tried again. I underexposed the image trying to bring out some mood in the image. At the time the volcano was causing the island to be smothered in "vog" and so many of the sunsets were very disappointing but I got a little color on this one

ColdSummerPics, chee_hian, and 409 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    really nice feel. not sure about the processing on the actual turtles. they look pasted on a bit or over dodged?
