[1]Flickr Link: Wailea Oceanfront

[2]Flickr Link: Wailea Oceanfront

Taken just before sunrise in Wailea, Maui.

Our room was near the oceanfront so I decided to wake up really early on our first day and take some photos.

These photos were taken with shutter speeds more than 20 seconds. The light coming from the right side is from a spotlight installed near the oceanfront.

These are both beautiful pictures. I like the deep blue colors and the steam-effect caused by the long shutter speed. I also like the composition. The tree gives a nice reference point. I like the second picture better due to the better perspective.

Hi Gracey, its Dennis here. About your picture #1, The shot is good and interesting already exposure, composition and concept however, I think you should put more foreground space below the tree, show mmore of the rocks, logs if there are any and if possible more mist, smoke, fog whatever it is. As for the top ot the tree show a little more of the tree. In a situation like this you can probably change your lens or adjust to a wider focal length and take the shot with a wider perspective, you can also use the same lens and if space will permit you can move back and take another picture to show more of the foreground and of the tree.

Gracey both of these photographs are worthy of framing. They're both beautiful and I can't wait to see the rest in this series of photographs from your vacation.
