It was sunny, warm, and beautiful. But after the trip, when I reviewed the pictures, they just didn’t capture the warmth. They were pretty gray and shadowy. They could have been taken at home in Seattle. It many our faces were obscured in shadow.
In the few years since then I have learned (uh…my daughter showed me) how to fix the lighting and shadows. Recently I ran across the Hawaii pictures, and this time I played with them all in Microsoft Digital Image Pro, and suddenly it’s Hawaii the way I remembered it.
