The winner is... Kent Vaughn! We share our sincere congratulations with Kent Vaughn for this splendid photo!
To quote Kent Vaughn:
Due to the pandemic, I could not take my wife on her ‘retirement vacation’ to the Big Island of Hawaii last year, but we were able to go with another couple this past week...just in time to see the Kilauea Volcano during an active eruption. We had to hike 2-plus miles after dark along Crater Rim Drive in Hawaii Volacanoes Nat’l Park to the Byron Ledge to view the active lava flow. Needless to say, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience so see an active volcano spewing lava throughout the Kilauea Caldera from the Halema’uma’u Crater!This photo was taken with my Nikon D500 and a Tamron 18-400mm telephoto @ 400mm. ISO 4K, f6.3, 1/320sec exposure. My Luminar edits were Enhance @ +41, Light tweaks were Smart Contrast +33, Highlights +17, and Shadows +35. Details added Sharpen at +27. With an ISO at 4000 I the used the Denoise tweaks with Luminosity +30 and Color +22.
Isn’t this photo truly stunning? As the winning entry, it will be published in the Insiders Community and on our official Skylum Instagram shortly. We’ll be contacting Kent Vaughn directly to share the prize!
