A couple of kids playing on Ke’e Beach in Kauai.  This beautiful beach is at the beginning of the Na Pali Coast.

This was with my Canon 5D II and 24-105 at 67mm.  Exposure was 1/50 of a second, f/10 at iso 500.  The aperture of f/10 gave me the depth of field to keep the kids and the background both in focus.   I needed to bump the iso to 500 to get enough of a shutter speed to freeze the movement of the kids and the waves.  Like in my last post, I used aperture priority – but in this one I actually dialed down the exposure compensation to – 1 stop to keep the waves from being blown out, and the black rocks dark.  Goes to show, gotta always check the historgram.

    @ Richard – you definitely need to go!

    @ Vera. Good question. When I captured this it was a quick detour before hitting the Kalalau Trail on the Na Pali Coast, so I think I was just hand-holding. But, I almost always use a tripod – well, I would say 95% of the time.
