Kona Coast, Sunset, II

Photograph by Doug Couvillion: Kona Coast at sunset (2 of 4)

Another image of waves breaking against the Kona shore just before sunset.  This one feels more serene than Kona Coast, Sunset, I but the two photos were taken within minutes of each other along the same stretch of the coast.  The key difference being the length of the exposure.  For this photo I used a 2.5 second exposure while the other was only 0.3 seconds.

Smyth County Courthouse

Low light image of the Smyth County Court House in Marion, VAI drove by the Smyth County Court House in Marion, VA and thought it would be a great subject.  When I came back to take pictures it seemed sort of boring in the light of day.  The building itself is pretty impressive but the lighting was all wrong.  I didn’t take a single photo that day but decided to come back after the sun went down and found it much more interesting at night.  This photo was one of the first I took.  As the evening went on the sky quickly grew darker and became black in the photos.
