"Honolulu Rising"

This is an image taken from our hotel earlier this week.  We are right in the mist of downtown Honolulu.  It's quite a changed place from  it's Pearl Harbor days of the 40's.  I have always been a fan of "urban landscapes" always intrigued by the lines. colors, and symmetries I see so often in our strolls through the big cities.  I am always looking up. Each night the building featured in this shot would go through a wonderful metamorphosis of color and tone as the sun set to it's left.  I have loved watching the cinematic lighting on this building most every evening in Honolulu.  This shot is one of my favorite captures of this building. The symmetries, strong vertical lines, and subtle contrasting colors make for today's striking simple urban portrait.  Camera specs; Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm lens at 160mm, F9.0 @ 1/640 second, ISO 400. 

Enjoy!  -David
