[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Unlike Boracay, the beach here is volcanic black sand, mixed with large rocks. There are 7 active volcanoes on this island, with the last big eruption in 1951. Few of these beaches are in any way developed for tourists, & at Bon Bon Beach, the fisherman's shacks & their fishing boats line up along the shore. Those 'rocks' in the foreground, are husked coconuts. I've burned in the highlights & dodged the shadows. Any more, & the tonal range starts to look a little flat. The strong tropical backlight was tricky here, but I thought the shot was worth it.

Hello Chris,

Beautiful beach, excellent shot with good saturation, lighting and contrast.
Congratulations and TFS

hi there,

this is one beautiful shot, good use of branches on the left to fill the frame. a slight OE in some areas but no big deal.


Hi Chris,

Great scene from a beach with perfect colors!
Wonderful sharpness and perfect POV. The repetiting pattern the way these colorful boats are parked on the white sands, is smazingly beautiful!

Hi Chris - Excellent perspective in this shot that makes it worth the difficult lighting which you handled well. Another great tropical scene.

Hi Chris,

Yes, definitely difficult lighting conditions to work with. Using the trees to frame the shot was perfect, and I much prefer scenes like this to the touristy ones. A nice down-to-earth capture!

Hi Chris,
A very good light management in this beach shot.
Beautiful colors of the boats. Nice trees serving as a natural frame to this beautiful perspective. The inclusion of the human element attracts everyone's attention.
A good composition from such POV.
Good work.
Best regards,

Hi Chris,

I sometimes prefer this rustic tropical scene over the more polished ones. A very charming scene. I do like the wide spectrum of exposure and the natural framing. You did well using Adobe's dodge and burn feature. Cheers.


Ciao Chris, beautiful sea view with lovely boats in FG, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, ciao Silvio
