Beach Beetle

Beach Beetle Saw this lovely beetle in Hale'iwa on the trip to Hawaii last month.  Stephanie and I were on the north shore of Oahu for only one day and of course it was supremely overcast and rainy that which was a real shame b/c that side of the island is quite beautiful and with the right light there could be some great photo chance.  Either way though we enjoyed walking around the litte shops and eating the world famous shave ice at one of the stands.

I still have a couple more to process from Hawaii but I'm close to being done. The treatment on this one is a little departure from recent styles...not sure if I'll make it a theme but I think it looks pretty cool.

Processing:

  • - 3 exposures -2/0/+2
  • - Photomatix
  • - Photoshop masking/effects/crop
