Getting a work out

This is another shot I sort of saved by shooting in RAW instead of JPEG. The original image was way underexposed and I almost was able to make it a decent picture using the adjustments in the RAW converter in Photoshop.

This is from the Old Lahaina Luau in Lahaina. I think I would hurt something if I tried to hula! I'm not sure what is worse, doing the hula or trying to keep the flowers on your head.

Are you getting tired of photos from Hawaii yet?

Here is the original photo as taken. The only adjustments I have made is switching it to a JPEG from the RAW file.


  1. i'm guessing both take more coordination than i've got left in my body, too!

  2. Good save!

    If I had this dancers youth I would be looking for the firesticks I have seen the male dancers using to do their fast pace dance!

    I think she has a flower in her hair that resembles one of your pics!

  3. Never get tired of Hawaii pictures, keep em coming!

    Be interesting to see the picture you had to start with and compare it with this one... This picture certainly came out very good!

  4. Ask and ye shall receive.

    Paul, I added the original photo to the bottom of the post so you can see what it looked like.

  5. Very good results on the finished photo considering how dark the original photo is!

  6. What can I say! The magic of RAW file.
