When we stayed in Waikiki in September 2005 we loved the place despite the fact that it is busy and there are people everywhere. We rented a car for a couple of days and went round the island. This was one of the beaches along the north of the island. Sorry, I don't know which one. I have since been told that this is "Sherwood Forest Beach".
This is the full frame, untouched apart from slight boosts to contrast and saturation. To me it really does give a wonderful sense of solitude with the expanse of sand and sky with a single figure. Hope you like it.

Very idyllic picture, makes me think of holiday and upcoming summer. It's a pity I have to go to work tomorrow:-)
Good composition with the lying lady on the beach. The single silhouette emphasises the sense of freedom and solitude you can get on a remote island, far from urban life.

Keith, this is Sherwood Forest Beach. I spent an afternoon boogie boarding this beach in April 2005. Here's my picture from what looks to be nearly the same spot:Beach.
I like the colors in your image.

I love the contrasts in this photo, the blue sky against the green water, the bright sand against the dark tree line, and the puffy clouds. I love the sense of solitude with the lone sun worshiper. What a wonderful place, wish I was there. Excellent work.
