cmantx: I really like the colors in this shot.
thanks, it was an amazing Hawaiian sunrise with a wave that came as a big surprise
Thanks Marcus. yeah the 8-16 is really wide-took a bit to get used to. in fact still learning and yes they are still building under there
Thanks very much James, and all who voted. I'm a bit stunned-first time a winner
JerryShots: It is one problem with an open jury...Any idiot can vote for what ever dumb ass reason they choose. Half stars for this shot, in this challenge indicate more about the voters than the shot.Don't know which of us 'should' have come in last...But thought your shot had a bit of edginess, humor and was a valid display of public affection - Which was more than could be said of some of the other entries.
Was that a bit of HDR giving the buildings the unusual tonality?
thanks for kind words. its part of the good and bad in this type of competition. I still enjoy it though.as for HDR - no just some pp from lightroom. thanks again
thanks Thanasaki, I thought it was just a bit of fun-I'll keep trying
I loved this shot. should have scored higher
it is beautiful Wellington I was there in early January
