This was taken a few months ago in Hawaii with my point and shoot, then a bit of playing in Photoshop...
Any hints, tips, constructive criticism or comments are welcome and appreciated.
This is nicely done.The sepia gives it a good old world feeling.

Can you imagine that of all the times I have been to Hawaii, I never did any art photography there? Nice shot and wise toning. The only thing I would like to change is out of your control. I wish the statue of the mechanic wasn't there!

@Henry: Can you imagine the fun you're going to have when you finally get back there! Thanks for your comment, Henry.
looks like a cool place to take pictures, nice work.
@alex centrella: Thanks a lot Alex. It was a very cool place, I wish we'd had longer there. But then I wish that every time I go to Hawaii. :)
Nice B&W. It doesn't say Hawaii to me though --I'm inclined to think Florida. But it's been a long time since I was in Hawaii.

@Twelvebit: Thanks for the comment. I've never been to Florida so I can't compare. Koloa is a small town on one of the outer islands in Hawaii and the site of its first sugar plantation. It's quite old and quaint and they have worked that to the max for the tourists. They've done it really well, it's quite charming.

@Michael Rawluk: Thank you Michael. It took me quite a lot of fiddling especially since I don't really know what I'm doing! I'm enjoying the learning though.
Wow... nice back-in-the-days effect!
Great colour tone and composition for the scene!

A fabulous image Margie, you've created a wonderful old world feel, I love it.
I'm teaching myself photo shop, using online tutorials, here's a link to one that I find really useful, I hope you do too :)

This one is truly vintage ... I don't remember pumps like this, but I do remember pumps like the one in my post (I'm 50, BTW, not that I'm some young whippersnapper)! Nice Photoshop work! I find that between my photography and exploring the world with new eyes (which I've just rediscovered after a long, long time away from it) and learning new things in Photoshop I feel rather like a youngster again ... learning something new each day!

@Ron: Oh you did find it in the end. :)
Thanks for the visit and comment Ron. I've only just started my photographic journey (though I'm older than you!) and you're right, I'm learning new things all the time and loving it!
