  • so this is hawaii.. me likey!! especially with the cold weather setting in.. i need me some beach action.. :D nice shot.. :)

  • yes this is a change. funny but the previous image feels warmer to me than this one does. i like the movement in the trees.

  • @michele haha. you might be right. the blue tones in this one feel cold.

  • was thinking about this image later and realized i didn’t say how much i liked the low perspective and the fact that you got the whole trees in.
