Thanks everyone for the really kind votes and comments.

Hawaii pretty much only has 1 season and that's summer. It's been particularly dry over the past few months making a lot of normally green areas like this one, very brown. After reviewing the shots, the outcome was much more Autumn than it was Spring so that's the direction I went when processing.

I walk by here daily and hope we get some rain soon. I like it much better when it's green and with the river flowing much faster.

Stunning!

Beautiful, clean photo. I would have to say a bit too much dodging and burning on the foreground (or at least HDR) to the point of distraction. However, overall, very solid composition.

Beautiful ight in the background, with a serene, autumn atmosphere. Good composition, bot too much of the less interesting foreground. Crop it up to a panorama format.
