Not sure if this works or not so thats one reason to post it here and get a little feedback. I was taking images facing the other direction of the beach and sunset and turned around to see this. I went for the long exposure to try and capture the feel of the coconut palm gently blowing in the calm warm breeze. Never really tried anything like this before. I used a ND grad to slow the shutter down a little and tried to tone down the pink and purple hues to the right of the image. I was going to try the Siliuette type image but I figured they have been done to death and went with this angle.
The image(s) 3 were taken right on the beach looking back to our hotel. The following night we attended a Luau at pretty much the same spot on the beach. Gorgeous surroundings warm and tropical made for eating and drinking Lava Flow cocktails very easy.
Why I named this five brothers is I saw the bachelor and three graces in Yosemite National Park and recently saw the Mark Walberg movie five Brothers.
