Part of a series with Dusk in Waikoloa #2:

Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.

    No to sure what you did with this, E, but man does it look good !! :)

  • Thanks, Stan! I almost didn’t upload it, ‘cause I wasn’t sure I liked the result or not. I basically desaturated and added a gold/orange filter. the original is very colorful but doesn’t capture the mood I felt when taking the shot. This part of Hawaii is kind of desolate – lots of open space, stark landscape, lava rock…
