Tropical rainforest & coconut palms hugging every inch of available space on Cadlao Island in the Bacuit Archipelago. El Nido overlooks this scenic gem. Taken from a moving boat so not razor sharp. The rocky karst limestone peaks, even have some greenery on their summits.

Olá Chris

A beautiful tropical colors palette where the tropical green stands out.

Paradise!! Nice posting for the theme Chris! A straight horizon!! Perfect for this, tilt would not work here. Love the water.

Hi Chris
good capture of tropical rainforest. the coconut palms splendidly visible on the white beach. wonderful greenery and amazing turquoise water. colors of paradise.

Hi Chris,

The image is well divided, the sky the mountain, the trees and the sea. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tropical scenery. The afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Splendid greenery in this landscape shot. Perfect sharpness and lighting. I like the dash of water in the base.

Ciao Chris, lovely and peaceful composition with a lot of green, really a fantastic place, beautiful sky, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

It's unfortunate that almost all of the rain forest are disappearing in the Philippines. The wild orchids, animals and colorful birds are about gone with them. This is a nice reminder of their beauty. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Wonderful very green colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Chris, the limestone peaks give an interesting skyline, plus their green vegetation, and a contrasting texture to the varied trees of the rainforest.Framed by the beautiful green of the sea.
Sharpness is not under scrutiny in my opinion, it is the overall impression here, that is important.
Tfs, regards Jean.
