Thanks for the comments. It was really tough coming back home esp for our 20 month old son who enjoyed the beach so much that he used to mutter "water splash splash" in his sleep.

I think I had seen maybe a grand total of 2 sunrises in my life till about a week ago.  The 3 hr time difference from PST made it perfect as our bio clocks were tuned to wake up around 5.00 AM local time.  Kauai is indeed a tropical paradise and if life was fair everyone should have a chance to visit Hawaii at some point.

Brian, thanks for the tip. Will give the tool a try and see how it turns out. I had to use f22 with 2 ND filters stacked to try and get a long exposure for the milky water. It turned out Ok but I guess stacking 2 filters at wide angle resulted in vignetting in some of the pictures and also sharpness was not that great even for the SAL 16-50mm.

I tried and learned something new in taking those pictures. Hopefully will get a chance to take such pictures in the future.
