Day 2 (Marooned in Colibra)

Large Version here (you must be signed in to view this)

On the second day of our stay in Tambobong we decided to explore a small island known to the locals as "snake island" because of the large population of sea snakes there. Thankfully they (snakes) only come out at night :).

The island is just a 20 minute boat ride from the shores of Tambobong. Its quite small, it doesn't show on my Google Earth (not enough hi-res images I suppose). Its a nice place to get a good tan, the island offers very limited shade as you can see from the small number of coconut trees there.

- 3 photos and merged using CS2 Photomerge
- tripod is a requisite so that you maximize the image size. You will be cropping a lot if the images are not level.
- CPL is used to enhance the sky, no clouds that day.
- "Heal" tool is used in CS2 to even out the portions where the photos overlap

I wanted to upload a 4000pix image for the large post but with the 400kb size limitation, the image quality is very very bad.

Hi Alla,

It is a beautiful composition.
Excellent POV, colors and details. Congratulation!


Hello Allan !

Certainly a place I would not like to stay overnight . I am like Indiana Jones , I hate snakes ! (LOL !)

Good stiching job. I find although , by experience a bit disappointing the look of a reduced panoramic shot. They look ordinary and to not give justice to the work done. (^_^). Fortunately registered members have the prviledge to see the actual original size ( or almost ..... )


Excellent Allan, the larger version is just as stunning. Good colour, well composed and very good detail. TFS,


nice colors and POV sir

Having the land right in the middle of the photo did not help the composition imo.. it would have been more effective if you have shown more of the ocean either on right or left.. Large version looks great though, beautiful place to be.. thanks Allan
