Shot this at some distance with a 70-300MM lens at 300mm. Tight crop on the center. Not as crisp as I would like for this kind of shot, almost like a macro, but with the a 300mm telephoto and with the trades blowing pretty good it is not too bad. I predict a slightly above average score of maybe a 5.7 or.5.8 on this one with some OOF comments.

I just cringed when I saw this shot because it was so good and much better than my own similar entry. Very very nice!

Such a "feel good" image. Like a Saturday morning sunrise with nothing on the schedule. 9

I like the tight crop. Could use a bit of contrast, it seems a teeny bit overexposed too.

I would have really liked to see a point of sharp focus on here.. It looks pretty soft across the entire image.. Sometimes soft works, but I think just for me, some really sharp areas would have made this pop..
