Early morning lights

Early morning lights at the port of Kawaihae, Hawaii

I took these photos one early morning at Kawaihae Harbor. I was experimenting with settings and came up with a couple of different looks of the same scene. Not sure which I like best. Any thoughts?

      The wheel can be replaced, but it’s a tricky process beyond my capabilities I think. There is a work around using the quick menu so I’m using that. It’s not bad, but a little more time consuming.

    Very nice! I keep going back & forth, but I think I like the first best! The second one is nice but the colors in the water are very powerful. Where the first seems balanced so you enjoy the whole image at once. But both are Great!

      Yes and no. It’s the biggest port on the west side of the island, but deals mostly with the inter-island barges. Typically one or two come in in the morning, they spend the day unloading them, then loading with outgoing freight, and the barges leave in the late afternoon. Some days, it’s very quiet there.

      I think you right about that. Longer exposures are the biggest weakness of my camera, the more so right now since the little wheel for quick adjustments is currently not working!
