Waikiki 6:51 AM by SpicyHamster Waikiki 6:51 AM by SpicyHamster
Location: Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii

Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel

Another long exposure I took from the hotel balcony just before 7 in the morning. Again, I really wish I had brought a tripod with me...that would have eliminated the camera shake. The slope in the background is the base of Diamond Head. Unfortunatly the entire crater was not visible from the hotel.

Please Full-view...you might miss something if you don't.

I suppose so. The zoo was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. I believe it was a Hyatt.

Nice shot. I like the composition and the contrast between orange and blue. I've noticed people have commented about the blurriness, so I won't bother with that. However, I think the lamps are a little too bright. Though I'm not very familiar with the technical aspect of photograph, I'm sure there's a way to adjust the intensity of the light. Anyway, keep it up! :)

Thanks! The blurriness is a reall bummer. Oh well, next time I'm there I will take a tripod.

Lamps are too bright huh? Well, as it is a long exposure...I could have shortened exposure time but then the sky wouldn't have been so blue. There is always photoshop :)

Beautiful shot! I like the colours, the sky and the sea have almost the same tone of blue...It's a pity it's a bit shaky, but it doesn't matter that much, this gives it a dream-like aspect :)

I wish i had the will power to wake up early and take pictures, but sleep is an important thing. You are right on the button with the camera shake. Although it looks like a decent view.
