PARAISO by micahgoulart PARAISO by micahgoulart
f/6.3, 30s exposure using a Canon 10-20mm lens on a Canon 350D.

Taken in Hana on the island of Maui in the Hawaiian Islands, on a recent trip with my brother `isacg

Amazing scenery there and there's no way this photo does it justice.

Photo was taken at around sunset time thus the lights on the houses. It was a truly spectacular view.

One of the most beautiful long exposures that I've seen. I'm especially fond of the striking sky and subtle scenery which is reminiscent of HDR.

The processing and framing are perfect, a capture that truly makes me feel like I can almost reach out and touch the water with my toes.

This is a first-class photo in nearly every way! I fail at pinpointing anything that could improve this image.

It's usually hard for me to be a fan of long exposure, because it has to be done just right. For me, this is very well done. The first thing that caught my eye was your choice of the time of day. Sure, everyone can capture a sunset, but you chose the best time to capture a sunset. The colors really pop out in this. The green is very vivid, and this time the sunset can be seen in the water. One thing I love about this picture is seeing the huts/houses. They look lit up like they have a nice warm fire going, thanks to the exposure time. You have a great eye for asymmetry too.

Wow. The saturated house lights are a bit extreme but the landscape is breathtaking.

Yeah, the lights ended up saturated because this was a long exposure shot taken at twilight...

WOW!! Love the scenery. Now that is paradise, especially to a fisherwoman like me. I really enjoy pictures like this. It hypes me up to want to go fishing there and being at peace with nature while holding that fishing rod.:love:

So gorgeous. I like all of that rough volcanic rock in the front with that beautiful soft sky in the background. And those lights in the homes - wow... it's like they are on fire. That looks so cool.
