[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's been hot in Australia lately, (42 c in Sydney today), but I know from living in the northern hemisphere in late December / early January, in a cold, icy, snowy, wintery Korea, that this is the sort of place many people only dream about. The snorkelling and cruising between the Bacuit Archipelago islands in the boats, as seen here, is a delightful way to spend a 'winters day'.

Hi Chris.

We have been watching the fires out of control on the news recently, it must be of great concern to all there.
Pleasing proportions of beach, boats of skyline. I like the bubbly clouds behind the hills, it creates two areas of weather in one scene.

stv ;o))

Beautiful! So tropical and yes, I wish I am in the tropics right now. It's not that cold but cold enough. Awesome capture of this scene with good lighting and dof with sharp details. Love the colors. Well done, tfs.

A bit more contrast could bring more beauty in..

Lovely tropical scene, Chris..!
I agree with Muhammad.

Hello Chris, a 'picture postcard' of an idyllic place.
I am rather surprised by its' name!
A good composition with natural colours.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Chris

With all the fussing and cussing around here.....it sure is good to see an old Pro back at TL. Your presence is welcome for sure. I like the Panoramic view of the tropics. kind of bright though, maybe a touch of contrast. Good to have you back. I need to see excellence. That is how I learn by example ofcourse. have a great day


Ciao Chris, lovely composition with beautiful beach, superb sky, excellent clarity, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Chris...nice summer scene...quite different than what exists here now. Nice colors and tones with nice light.

Hi Chris,
Yes, it is cold, dark and damp in Toronto. This is a sight to behold. This could easily be a Caribbean island, Cuba or Hispaniola.

I like the way you included people in this photo, giving life to the image. Beautiful cloud patterns on the horizon.


Hi Chris,

The distance between the beach and the islands is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the action in the water and the details and colors of the boats. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
