Hawaii in Different Light

I haven’t been going out anywhere to make pictures lately, and doubt that I will around other people until after the flu and virus seasons are over.  In order to keep thinking about photography, I had been thinking about whether or not I want to get an additional lens for the Pentax KP, when I remembered the last time I traveled with a Pentax DSLR.  It was when we were in Hawaii right before we moved here to Homewood in 2011.

I decided to reload the pictures into LR and reprocess them as I checked out what focal lengths I used on that trip to Hawaii.  I only had the Pentax 18-55mm kit lens with me and I doubted that the images would be very good, but I found them to be better than I remembered.  While reprocessing them I also decided to see how they would work with my latest B&W style.  You can see the results above.  I like them, especially since they show Hawaii in a totally different light than most people think of when thinking about Hawaii.
