BEST VIEWED LARGE

How would you like to be here right now...instead of heading of to work? On the day I took this photo, I rolled out of my bed put on my water shoes and walked out on the beach about 20 yards from our hotel room. And we found our self alone even though there were 100s of condos and hotel rooms on the coast....Nothing like having a piece of paradise all to your self.

How was this image created?
This was a simple application of soft GND Filter to balance the light out between the sky and water. Even with a GND filter some part of the water and sky needed to be adjusted using Photoshop Layers & Mask to bring out the details and textures in every part of the image.  

Enjoy & Share.

beautiful scenery. definitely a shore I'm want to get my feet soaked.
 
+Agasti Dukare The Island you see in the distance is Molakai...It is less populated than Maui and breathtaking.  The top of Molakai is often covered in clouds or fog, but we were lucky to catch a glimpse of it.
 
Simple and beautiful scene, Jay!  This is marvelous.

You can almost hear the surf and feel it lapping round your feet.  Nice photo.

This picture lacks composition, others are better. There's no sense of dimensions, everything is flat, nothing leads the eyes...

Oh, I'd much rather be working. It just looks so wet there :) And then you have to wash off the salt? Too much trouble!

q ermosa vista
 
una imagen que tranquiliza por completo, hermosa... 
 
I love it when that happens, I always find it strange that in a crowded holiday destination you can still get the entire place to yourself at sunrise, people will pay for the picture to put on their wall but cant be bothered to get up and experience it in person, anyway im not complaining about it, but will continue to get up before the sun on holidays :) Great photo +Jay Patel 
 
This is why I regretted not buying a camera before we left for Maui. We just came back on the 4th and I loved every view, every scenery but I only had a point and shoot and my phone. Only my unreliable memory had the best pictures from that trip.

Fantaaaaaaaastic, I got to find another dimension to jump in to so I could walk this with my family every night, looks like heaven in the middle of the terrifying Pacific O.
