Took this a few years back during a trip to Hawaii. my favorite of the whole day. It's got a few issues, but to be honest, I'm totally amazed that it came out at all. I bought the camera for the trip, and it was my first digital (and really my first camera at all that I actually "used")

Picture was taken with a Canon A610 at full zoom from a boat about 20 feet away in a light fog at dusk. What the picture doesn't show is that the waves were about 3 feet high and we were pitching and rolling all over the place trying to keep the boat in position. I snapped a bunch of shots in landscape mode on continuous mode and shot perhaps 15 images. all the others were totally motion blurred, but for some reason everything lined up in this shot.

unfortunately, I have nothing to give a sense of scale, but the "dome" of lave was perhaps 6-8 feet across.

there's no PP save for resize. C&C welcome

Very cool...er, I mean hot. I like it a lot--so much movement and dynamism!

I like it. I love the lack of color other than the molten lava.

Awesome capture! It really gives the viewer the feeling of "being there".

I think a levels adjustment would do this the world of good.

I wouldn't know the first thing about adjusting it. Still learning the editing side. right now I'm concentrating on learning the SLR I got in Jan. Feel free to edit away. I can send the full res image if you want. just PM me

Levels are quite simple, just move the sliders until you like what you see, Basically makes the whites lighter and the darks darker for better contrast.

I also applied some straightening, cropped to the standard 1:1.5 ratio and added sharpening (something you should always do, especially when downsizing).

Hope you like it.

The shot itself is good, the edit makes it great.

To get a sense of scale in a shot like this, you should have your Mother-In-Law stand very close to the lava.
