I think this is my style. Beaches with good high contrast, sweeping curves of the bay, good saturation (some would say a touch overdone, preferring no polarizing filter), and often tropical & exotic locations. Taken at Corong Corong Beach, El Nido, late in the afternoon, with the color temperature leaning towards yellow red, especially in the grove of coconut palms at right. The road to the town of El Nido heads for that V notch in the distance.

Good Morning Neighbour,
That's a lovely view of the angular sun. Relatively lower PoV in line with beach is great. Beautifully taken objects in fine details and excellent colors. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Hi Chris, when you can sit back and look along the beach and feel like you're there, there is nothing wrong with your style.. Fiona

Anyone who has read the recent debates on the choice ofor the theme of Fridays knows that this was the suggestion for this week, but that turned out to be a theme does not open ...
Undisputed that this picture is a beautiful example of your style, as you describe it, not because it is a beautiful beach, but being present in the majority of your's photos posted here.
Have a good week.

Olá Chris
There is no doubt that is a photo from you. First it is your blue/green, ...and also the sea is there. I like the elements on the beach and these kind of paradise feeling of your photos.
Um abraço

As usual there is a good color management and contrast.

Hi Chris,

Yep, definitely your style! Nicely composed, I love the receding/converging curves. Nice use of thirds.


Bonjour Chris,
Tout à fait ton style Chris et ta façon de nous emmener à l'autre bout de la terre avec de jolis clichés joliment travaillés, tels des décors de cinéma...
Celui-ci, en est encore la preuve trés coloré empreinte d'une superbe ambiance...
Merci Chris pour ce fabuleux partage...

AHHHHHHH- Now this is my 'preferred' style Chris ! Awesome capture, beach, boats, umbrellas and coconut trees..... doesn't get much better. Well composed and TFS Julie

Your photos are easily recognizable on this site Chris - and that's a good thing :) Your photos have a certain coloration and style, that is kind of hard to describe, but "ÿours" .
This is a beauty too. Love the lead in with the waves in the bottom left corner.
have a good weekend.

Hello Chris

One of the best images posted today. Nothing wrong with your final result. It affected my mind in a sense of yearning for the tropical breezes, Mai tai on the beach (non-alcoholic of course), sand through my toes, warm water to greet me as I snorkel in the bay, Holding hands with my wife as we walk for miles on deserted beaches, watching the sunset...............what, I have to get ready for work smelling jet fumes all day. Thanks Chris for taking away my daily worries for a short time. ;)

Yes, this could be my lifestyle too if my family would let me retire in Negros. Excep they are worried about the NPA, so I'm staying put in Nevada. Awesome capture of the afternoon sun and wonderful color with good saturation. Sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Yes, Chris, I assume this is your style! The tropical environment is in your heart and you produced fantastic shots of beaches that show this ambient and shared with us and are very to my likings!
A very sharp image form an agreeable POV.
The red boat is contrasting splendidly with the green palm trees.
Very neat work.
My regards,

hi Chris,
This is indeed your style. Looks like paradise to me! How I wish I was there. i like the composition with the beautiful coconut trees all around the bay.

Hi, Chris. A lovely composition with all the elements, color,high contrast, dramatic sky , beaches in a well balanced composition. The sharpness and exposure is excellent. Cheers.

Yes Chris , i think it's your style , you certainly like to be around a beach as proved by the numerous beach photos in your portfolio and you have the knowhow to get the maximum out of the exotic scenery . The palms and the beach forming an arc around the bay yield so much loveliness and prettiness to this beachscape , the whole assuredly makes for an inviting place to linger for a ( preferably long ) while .
Postcard pretty and well presented my friend ,
Cheers from cool Canada,

Hi Chris I think you have identified your style well. Your style also brings a sense of tranquility and well being. TFS

Bonjour Chris,

I have not followe your portfolio thru the years, but I must admit that a lot of your images I have seen recently have nice beaches with a lovely light. Dream places to relax and to enjoy the nice weather. And you do capture the image with good technical quality and pleasant compostion. Good example for your participation to the Friday theme. TFS.


Hi Chris,

The palm trees are framing well the beach and the sea. The beach is sending my eyes toward the mountain which is giving depth to the composition. The quality of the light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
