I tried removing the lamp on the coconut tree, in this one. I think I succeeded! I liked the sunset colours & graphic silhouettes here. Waikiki is one of the most well known beaches on the planet, and graces Honolulus foreshore.
If anyone wants to see where the lamp was, here it is.

Dreamlike mood. The composition is superb. The silhouettes of the palm trees rise as huge arcades on the coast, the distant lights are wonderful. Great! Have a nice day!

A very romantic composition with lovely sunset tones. Two fine sets of silhouettes in the palm trees and the people watching the sun going down. Very good sharpness.

Very much a shot that epitomizes Hawaii, the palm trees and the sunset, all we need now is Elvis singing.
I love the silhouettes of the people on the beach, and of course the light is superb.
A stunning image.

Nice sunset mood in this one, Chris. Fine rendition of the luminosity of the strong orange and yellow light, and delightful use of silhouettes with the palmtrees, and the people scattered amongst them. Well seen.

A superb sunset photo with the beautiful sky and colorful clouds and the amazing silhouette with the coconut trees and people on the beach. Very well captured. Wonderful composition.

It's been 20 years ago since i was there, but remember it very well standing there myself and also enjoying the sunset. Not much has chanced since then, still people around and still those wonderful colours in the sky which you framed very good with those palmtrees in front...excellent shot, very good.

Fantastic sunset with beautiful tones of yellow and flattering blue in the sky.
The silohuetted palms and sunbathers adds a very warm tranquil feel to this placid landscape.

This is truly a Waikiki Sunset! I love the palms with the colors and light to the front as it enhances the scene.

You ve made good use of the people and palm trees silhouettes with the focus on them and this colorful sunset sky is a fine backdrop.

Good work to capture this image. Very good colour, contrast and definition.
pierrefonds (52548) 2009-05-20 4:20
The presence of the people has an effect of scale. The palm trees are framing well the beach and the sea. The point of view is taking our eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the photo. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky and the sea. Have a nice day.
Angshu (53659) 2009-05-20 5:39
Lovely sunset, through the silhouetted coconut palms, the wonderful sky. Like the cloud in the left as well. Fine shot!
