This is an image I’ve dreamed of capturing for years. Last winter I spent four dawn shooting sessions here, several with my Kauai workshop participants in tow. The last morning of the trip we finally got the lights and weather conditions we wanted for the scene. This image is a composite, I used Layers to blend an HDR image (also created with ON1) of the sky with a second image taken a few moments later when the light and wave action were perfect on the foreground. I created an entire start to finish instructional video detailing the process in ON1 Photo RAW.
