We're back from Hawaii...arrived early yesterday morning. I shot around 1500 photos and approximately 10.4 GB. I no longer have the CS2 trial, so hopefully I can get the bought within the next day or two (Bridge is 'da bomb! when it comes to raw processing fast, easy, and professional).

This is Lihue, Kauai's main city. Brent and I took a helicopter tour the morning before we left the isalnd. Most of the island mountain rainforest, but there are some flatter, inhabited areas near the coast.

I doubt you will see much of anything but Hawaii pictures on here for the next week or two (at least). Well, school starts tomorrow, so I must get to bed!

Mahalo! (ok, I have heard that one too many times in the last week...ahhhh)

Very observant, Chet. I changed everything but the exif data to Lucida Grande....from Verdana and Arial.

Wow - great wide shot! Something funky seems to be going on in the lower right corner - not sure what that is. Aside from that, great photo -- amazing colors and contrast!

ok, so I'd be happy if you'd just position me right next to the ocean in this shot... Great work. I am sooo envious!
