Ala Moana Sunset Tree • Honolulu, Hawaii
Every Summer since 1990 I have shot this tree as a silhouetted foreground object in hundreds of images along with bikers, runners, skaters and sitters (3 of those images are in this gallery). The ball 'o fire, clouds and ocean make a dramatic backdrop for any subject. However, this sunset was too bright and the contrast too extreme for a good image. Plus, crowds of tourists and trash cans cluttered the foreground. Subsequently, I tucked the sun behind my fav tree to lower the brightness level, tilted the camera up slightly to avoid the messy foreground and nailed this savanna like image.
