(Nikon D700, 28-300mm @ 300mm, ISO 640, 1/1000 sec at f/5.6)

A few weeks ago my family had the pleasure of visiting the island of Hawaii. The day after we arrived, I woke up early and took a walk along the Waikiki Beach area. The sun was just coming up and people were already out and about. At the far end of my walk there was a breakwater which extended from the beach out into the ocean. At the end of the breakwater was a little covered structure with several people enjoying the morning view. There was a group of kids with food that they were using to feed pigeons. I was lucky enough to get a few shots of the interaction between the birds and some of the children.

The processing of this image was done entirely in Lightroom. I did some minor cropping to eliminate some of the space at the top of the image and I used a bit of fill light, clarity and a post-crop vignette to create the final image.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below.
