I posted a gallery of Hawaii Pictures
with at least a little commentary for each.
This image collection is probably not what most are expecting to see. The Hawaiian Islands have extremely diverse climates and landscapes - within individual islands. Temperatures can change from mid-80s to upper 20s within a 2 hour slow-speed drive. And wind can drive home the particular temperature you are in. The average annual rainfall within these small islands can range from over 460" annually down to 10-12" annually.
The variety of subjects available in Hawaii could occupy my photography interests for a very long time.

DxO Optics Pro v8.1.4 provides support for four additional new cameras: the Nikon Coolpix P7700, the Nikon 1 J3, the Olympus XZ-2 iHS, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3.
DxO Optics Pro v8.1.4 integrates many powerful tools for processing RAW and JPEG images, including the best tool for automatically adjusting contrast and light, along with precise color management. Its unrivaled performance and intuitive interface provide a quick and smooth workflow. 11,000 DxO Optics Modules available
DxO Optics Pro v8.1.4 benefits from the continuous addition of DxO Optics Modules. More than 200 new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, offering support for additional Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Sigma, Tokina, and Zeiss lenses for numerous Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Pentax cameras..
Among the new lenses supported are the Nikon 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 (a standard lens equivalent to a 50 mm in 24x36 format), and Pentax’s recent trans-standard K-mount, the smc DA18-270mm F3.5-6.3 SDM.
The addition of these new combinations means that DxO Optics Pro 8 now has more than 11,000 DxO Optics Modules at its disposal. Developed in the laboratory using an exclusive calibration process, this unique database automatically corrects optical flaws such as distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness.

From Profoto: CONNECT TWO HEADS TO YOUR ACUTEB2 WITH THE ACUTEB TWO-HEAD SPLIT CABLE! The new AcuteB Two-head Split Cable from Profoto is a cord with one plug in one end and two in the other. Connect it to the output on your AcuteB2 and you have two outputs at your disposal. Very simple, yet very effective.
The AcuteB2 600 AirS is Profoto’s most compact and lightweight battery generator. This makes it perfect for on-location shoots and situations where you need to stay moving. It has only one output, but with the Split Cable that is not an issue.
Connect the Split Cable to the output of the AcuteB2 and suddenly you have two outputs. In other words, you can now work with two light sources – and this without having to bring another generator with you. So, it is either half the baggage or twice the possibilities, depending on what you are used to.
“This is admittedly an uncomplicated product,” says Göran Marén, Product Manager at Profoto. “But sometimes the simplest solutions are the best.”
With the Split Cable connected, the power distribution from the AcuteB2 becomes fully symmetric and each head can be powered with up to 300Ws. B&H
