Tropical Sunrise at East Coast of O’ahu (Hawaii)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/tropical-sunrise-at-east-coast-of-oahu-hawaii/

That was probably the most spectacular sunrise I got to witness in my life. Of course, the weather and the location played a big part in it. Only two days before I took the featured photo I was in freezing Montreal where the temperature was below -20°C for 3 weeks in a row and now, after short 12-hour flight, I was in the tropics hiking the volcanos and witnessing sun rising over the Pacific Ocean.

SHOOTING

When I analyzed the scene before shooting, I could see the very dark areas below me, the town was shaded by the mountain. At the same time, despite the sky was being mostly covered by thick clouds, I could see a few extremely bright spots above the horizon. It made me change the exposure bracketing intervals from 1EV to 2EV to cover the entire dynamic range of the scene.

I took 3 bracketed shots with 2EV intervals (-2, 0, +2) on a tripod standing on top of Lanikai Pillbox Trail.

PROCESSING

First, I merged 3 bracketed shots for HDR using new Lightroom Merge tool. I outlined this technique in my latest tutorial “Lightroom HDR – Natural Looking HDR In Lightroom”.

When I had brand new HDR image I created in a previous step, I started editing approach I outlined in The Minimalist Guide to Lightroom Editing. I liked the effect of Sunrise preset from Landscape Collection and later used ToolKit adjustments to fine tune image.

The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Sunrise (1, 10, 12, 21, 39)

Later, I decided to add more “fire” to the sky and used the Graduated Filter to add more red color to the left part of the sky.

Big Island is getting bigger :-) 
Hang onto that property, Hawaiians: in a few hundred years, there’s a chance your slice of paradise will be slightly larger. Geologically speaking, Hawaii is still growing fast, thanks to frequent eruptions from volcanoes like Kilauea, which was caught spewing its molten guts into the ocean last week.

Pololu Valley on the Big Island of Hawaii!

Hoping your end of the week is as lovely as this view of Pololu Valley, as seen from the end of Route 270 on Hawaii Island's roads.
