This looked so out of place that I thought it would make an interesting picture.

Very very nice. I wish I could have been there.
I have some minor suggestions.

I noticed that some of your pictures the foreground is light and the background slightly darker than it should be....which is completely normal. If you encounter anything like this or even at an extreme amount of light difference, try digital blending. You take two pictures, one over-exposed and the other under-exposed and blend them in photoshop.

here is the link. You won't believe how much of a difference it can make.

Another good site is

http://www.lonestardigital.com/photoshop_quicktips.htm

this site will help you remove the haze.

Using a polarizer will darken your image and force you to use a longer shutter speed. A combination of a polarizer or ND filter with a small to smallest aperture to force you to shoot with longer shutter speeds will make it possible to greatly help you focus everything on the image....DOF (depth of field)

Also using the "Color Balance" in photoshop to bring out the colors can help too. Here is how it could look like...slightly overdone to make my point or show the difference,...

in no way am I stating that this is the standard..only to make a small point.

I do appreciate the comments and the information on your suggestions. The example you provided really does make a difference.

All the shots were just resizedno touch up or tweaking of any kind, but for printing purposes your suggestion is something I need to give a try.

Mahalo,

Tom
