Taken with my 10 stop ND to get the smooth water. Shot from Ala Moana beach park looking across the boat channel to the yacht harbor. A very nice spot during sunset.

WooHoo! Shocked for sure.
A new PB and finally get to cross off my goal for getting a 7 but I really didn't think this would be the one to do it.

Thanks everyone for all the great votes and comments...I never hit the update button so much before..haha.

**************

This was my alternative shot.
Before I got there, my original vision was something like this one because I remember seeing an amazing sunset shot of these buildings that a friend of mine took. After looking through all of them though, I really liked the landscape one better.

10...I hope this wins a blue ribbon. It is gorgeous!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2011 11:28:35 PM
9 from me... One of my top four. (voted earlier)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2011 11:07:31 PM
Woooooo.hoooo....This is really good.

Back again. I see this as the Blue. However, I did vote a higher score to one of the landscapes. I gave this a 9 and my fav landscape a 10. However, this just seems to be what DPC voters will pick as the blue !

Good luck.

My pick for the Blue. Love the smoothing of the water and lovely tones and clarity. Normally not a fan of the letterbox borders but this one I can handle.
