Day 165, Skylight, Marriott Ihilani, Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii

A few shots of the resort. This was actually a lot harder then it looks. The white balance was all off and I made a somewhat dumb mistake, I left the polarizer on. The white balance was an easy fix since I shoot as much as I can in RAW. But don't zoom into the windows at the top of the skylight, the white fuzzies are not clouds. They are artifacts from the polarizer on the treated glass. Ever look at a car window with polarized glasses on? Same thing. You see the effects of the treatments that they put on the glass. The cut in glare is great, but the mistake was a little rookie.

Also, the sun rise from looking across the open interior.  It seemed since I wanted the focus to be on the light coming in to the open structured resort, black and white was the way to focus on that.  Also the entry table from above.  The circles and sunburst pattern were really enticing.  I have some others of this, but this one without people rushing by was my favorite.  This really was a nice resort. The rooms were quite comfortable and the views were well done.
