Arriving in Wailea—on the southwestern coast of Maui—I took one glance down the coastline and immediately new I would have to shoot this majestic tree someway or another. What I didn’t know is that I’d be blessed with an incredible, all-consuming sunset as well. It was a very peaceful shooting experience.
While I had been waiting for the good light, I fired of multiple shots to capture the birds in flight (Terns or Frigate birds I think). In post I easily overlayed my favorite bird picture with my main one. The gentle wind was somewhat of an issue so I had to be sure to capture shots at least 1/60s to keep everything still. Another challenge here was balancing the light throughout. I took separate exposures for the sky and foreground while also shooting various focal points to ensure sharpness throughout as well. Blended all in post to my liking finding darkening a lights curve mask really got the final light to where I wanted. The land in the background is the northwest part of Maui.
