Ryan, this looks like it is right down by Queen's Bath. I've been there numerous times in all kinds of weather and taken many shots but none this spectacular. Congrats on the well deserved award. If you get there again, the vacant lot at the end of Punahele Road just above Queen's Bath is a great place for sunsets. Cheers.

Fishing For A Dream

North Shore Kauai: Perched on this rock ledge over the ocean was an one of my favorite experiences shooting in Hawaii. It was a show. The waves were crushing the rocks and dousing everything in their path—including me. The water flowing off of the rocks was a long-exposure dream scenario—not to mention the nuclear bomb of a sky.

Now I know there is a lot going on here—sun-bomb atmosphere, Bali Hai in the distance, crashing waves, warm and cool tones, water movement overload in the rocks and why not a fisherman. Hey, hopefully it keeps the eye involved in the scene. But I think the overall composition does work, although weighted on the left, the wave to the right helps hold it all together.

In post I carefully blended my sky exposure and focus on the distance with my favorite foreground shot of the rocks and water. This was a 1.3 second exposure at f/14, ISO 100.
