Very nice, I was there in...........1991, 20 years ago....

Nice balance to the scene, did you crop out the bottom RH of the road or was that as captured?
I'd like to see the road completely captures....very minor point.

I take it you have some of same sunrise say 10, 15, 20 minutes earlier?

I'd be curious to see more stars and still hint of sunrise vs this great shot.

I did have the entire road in the original shot.. but some rude lady kept getting in my shots. She was in the bottom left of that shot so I had to photoshop her out and unfortunately had to crop a little from the bottom since she ruined part of the light trail :(

Just one disadvantage to using a wide lens. People can almost be standing next to u and still end up in your shots :(

If I had the chance to do it over again I would have went to a less populated area. Problem was it was very dark when we got there and weren't sure where to go.

I wish....actually honeymoon of 1st marriage June 1991- lasted 4 years and fortuantely no kids.

DMcGrew - thx again for posting this.....I've kinda put Hawaii in the "no visit" zone due to my past.
Now married 11+ years and 3 kids, it's time to visit Hawaii again, so much beauty there.
