Gone to See Hawaii, Maui Day 1: Surfer Girl at Hookipa Beach

This was the only day while in Maui that the surf was good. After coming down from Haleakala National Park, I spent a the later part of the afternoon at the Hookipa beach overlook watching and taking images. This image was taken with a Nikon D3x and 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 300 mm, f/8, 1/400 sec). This is a significant crop (1873 x 1249 from the original 6048 x 4032) as the action was quite a distance from the overlook. I was very impressed with sharpness the 70-300 mm lens.
