I've been lurking in this forum for awhile now... this is my first try at posting a pic here on Steve's site... I hope I did it right.

Anyway, this was taken in a lava tube on the Big Island of Hawaii this last August while we were on vacation. If my memory serves me right this was a 3 sec. exposure.

Heath, you were successful - not only in uploading, but meeting the challenge well. What an interesting, creative submission. It looks like the inside of a cave - or is that what a lava tube is? :-)

A lava tube is a "cave" that is left behindwhen the liquid lava drains out.

very cool shot!

i love the "ghost" effect..it's something i've tried a couple times...

gj with this shot

btw....when posting for the web, you don't need to compress it that much (it's about 16kb now), i usually keep each shot between 100-200kb each...that way the quality is still there...what program are you using for the resizing and saving for web? i think the jpeg compression numbers i use are NEVER below 50% quality...i'm usually on 90% unless it's too big, then i go down....(this is in photoshop....using the "save for web" feature...)

well, welcome to steves! i'm glad you posted! can't wait to see more of your shots!

Vito
