I took this shot at Sunset a few hours ago, on the beach off Farrington Highway, in Waianae, Oahu. It's been raining for days all across Hawaii, and we finally got some sun the last few days. Well, sorta, I kept driving and chasing the sun, and escaping the light rain that was causing a mist on my camera lens. Eventually I settled on this spot and sat by the ocean watching the waves roll in as the sun's last rays said their farewell.

Photography Note: For those interested in HDR photography, this isn't one. It's a single shot, not tonemapped. It was a surprise to me, but the long exposure gave this single raw shot a "painterly" impression.

pictures from photo sometimes better than eyes :)
 
The spot of light on the left is distracting. Shopping/cropping it out will improve this photo.

I particularly like the reflection on the left; did you consciously include it or was it an accident?
 
Fantastic shot. You really have an eye for this work.
 
amazing. you've missed your calling.
 
Surreal. If I could only take pictures have as good...
 
Hey Tom, "beautiful" picture! Wow where? Farrington Highway? That's quite a deal, did ya skid? This one would fetch you a pretty Penny, a sky like gold they'd say, were you driving your "pick up?" Did you need a push? A jump start, is it a standard, or Rolls Right?
 
Look at God's amazing creations.
 
absolutely awesome. the composition of the colors, the sky, the clouds, and the best part,the cloud-like sea. Fantastic.

Tom, how has things been for you? Myspace seemed to rule the world for a long time. I thought it to be great and met some great people around the world. Thanks for opening up the world to so many.
 
WOO HOO!...Stunning catch!...the Perfect Moment!

Where did you take it is awesome. Keep it up 
 
Tom....do you carry your camera all time with you................?
 
Love it. The beauty of mother nature at it's finest.
 
Tom, I would have to say that your photographs have been rapidly improving since the day you started posting them on here. I picked up photography just a little before you and can say that you have surpassed me by leaps and bounds in the short time.

I think it may be time that you start a new profession!
 
not HDR? bullshit :) prove it, post link to raw :P
Translate
 
or perhaps it is one raw only, but with huge amount of PP
 
Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!
 
IT IS A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE I WOULD NOT MIND THAT ON MY COMPUTER
 
This is so gorgeous! I like longer exposures myself... seems to "fill in" the shot.
 
ya but how do u chat?
 
love it! Almost brings me back :^D
 
that is one hell of a shot are you a pro?
 
Amazingly beautiful, God really knew what HE was doing :)
 
The sunrays posed for you at it's right moment...
 
Wow, aren't you the lucky one. Hey, trying to spread the word about "KONYA2012" Please go to youtube and type that in, and WATCH. You will not believe what you see. And then, SPREAD THE WORD. Thank you!
 
Oh Tom, very nice. I don't think most people understand the hoops photographer's jump through to get that perfect image. Thanks for jumping. Ha ha. :-) great shot.
 
This pic is really enchanting. Thank you.
 
wow u look to young to say that you are retired
 
Wish I was there right now. Congratulations on the awesome photograph!

It's pretty. Very serene. Overdone HDR would have ruined that feeling. Glad you didn't go down that route with it.

Nice shot Tom. I was in Maui just a couple of weeks ago to photo Humpbacks and sunsets and the sunsets did not happen for me.
 
Always interesting when a snapshot ends up looking "photoshopped". :-)
 
it's wonderful i really impress.i jst b4 imagination lik dis wall..
Thank u.
 
Awesome,very very very beautiful picture.
 
Great picture. I took a drive on the Farington Highway a couple of years just following the sun heading west until the road ended. It was one of the best days I've ever had.
 
Is this for real?!!! Astounding!!!
 
GOD creations are really AMAZING!!!
 
Kind of shows how you don't always need post processing to creat a great shot. Nice work and timing +Tom Anderson!
 
What was the exposure on that! Im not a photographer but thats a very nice shot!
 
How do you take all these pictures and STILL have the stupid profile picture from myspace? Lol
 
The beauty of Nature lies in the very fact of accepting its complimentary nature to Man´s existence.
