On my first few days on the Big Island of Hawai'i, we had some incredible sunsets. Some of the best I've seen. The Big Island has some of the nicest beaches in the world and some of the clearest waters. This beach, Manini'owali is one of my favorite on a quiet evening like the night I took this photo. It seemed like nobody was around. A few turtles were swimming around in the crystal clear water making the night even more surreal.
It's one of the most amazing places I've been to and the whole time I was there shooting photos I kept thinking of how awesome the experience was, it just didn't seem real.
Manini'owali Sunset – Big Island Hawai'i
The technique on this one was my typical set of routines. A bit of Lightroom to get the colors and exposures as close to correct as possible. Then Photoshop for detail enhancements, color and touch-ups with fixes. Back to Lightroom for final adjustments and then some some secret sauce sprinkled on top.
