Kauai in Black & Color

SUBHEAD: Sometimes it's the contrast between black and color that pleases the eye.

This is what I guess is called a photo essay. I was looking through my photo library for a new image of Kauai to use as a background for my computer screen.

I realized after a while that my eye was caught by a genre of composition that I hadn't noticed before. They were images with large areas of blackness contrasting with intense areas of color.

These were not the greatest of photographs, but I found them interesting enough to share. Here are six.
