Wailea Sea Wall, Maui

Story

This was taken along a stretch of the Wailea Sea Wall. I’ve always loved interesting looking trees that are isolated like this one.

Shot at 17mm at F16 with a shutter speed of 1/40s and iso 100. This is cropped from a larger photo, so I would say the focal length probably ended up being closer to 28mm.

    I really like this one. I think it’s because the sidewalk makes it seem a little closer to home. It’s inviting.

    Very nice. I especially like the sunlight reflecting off the tree branches. You used F16 aperture to increase the depth of field, so that the foreground is in focus? 1/40s handheld, or do you carry a tripod?

    I love this image, you’ve captured the light beautifully. The greens from the foliage really help the picture come alive against the water and distant scenery.

    If this is from a larger image could you have given the tree a bit more space on the left? The tree looks like it’s leaning into that space and I wonder if it would add anything to show where it’s leaning into – or would that be really cheesy?

    I’ve art directed photo shoots but never mastered the technical aspects of photography – it shows, right?!

    Hey Patrick,

    Great pics – as normal:) I posted your link on my website today on our Fine Art and Photography page @ Hareswares.com. Didn’t ask your permission, so I hope you don’t mind? Don’t have massive traffic at this point, since we just launched on the 24th, but could be some good advertisement for you. Take a look at the site and let me know how you like it.

    Thanks, Steve
