The second week i spent on the island of Kauai and had the opposite experience. Quiet, peaceful, friendly people and amazing scenery combined with an ideal tropical climate made for paradise. I hope to dig out the archives some more photos from this amazing island as i couldn't of had two more contrasting travel experiences.
The photograph in question was taken along the picturesque waterfront of the tourist precinct of Honolulu with the sky rise hotels dotting the background.
This photo was processed using Adobe Photoshop CS5 with the Nik Software Viveza Plugin filter to help enhance the contrast between the sky and the clouds without the use of a polarizing filter.
