[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While searching the archives I came across this beach on the Napili shores. After traveling for almost 24 hours this was one of the first shots taken my first morning on Maui. I loved the lighting and the depth. I had to clone out the lawn chairs and a railing, added a bit of saturation, resized and sharpened. It has been raining and dreary for days and I wanted to see some sunshine. Hope you like it. Have a great day!

Hi Lori,
Lovely depth and feel to this shot. I think the cloning could be improved - I know it's time consuming to get it right but on such a large area of the shot it really stands out if the cloning is not good. I find by altering the size of the brush and the opacity of the clone and going over and over taking care not to copy defects and reproduce them in a line - the area you have cloned is even more awkward as it is a large flat area, it may have been more beneficial to leave the lawn chairs in as a bit of focal point. The composition is good with the dark sky and low cloud highlighted by a good light and nice colour. Best wishes

Bonjour Lori,
Je viens d'aller visiter ta galerie, très beau voyage !
Par contre, je ne sais pas pourquoi tu as une perte de qualité sur cette photo... peut-être trop de recadrage ?
Bonne journée


  • Great

A place to have fresh air and to breath out all your tensions, lovely blue sky and green fields are the result of perfect light balancing ,
