I liked the curved lead in lines from the inviting freshwater pool & the view to the distant ocean beach through the coconut palms. Shot at Chaweng Beach on Ko Samui in the Gulf of Thailand.

Hi Chris!
Your pool and sea place has arttracted so many visitors - it is natural to attract my attention too - for it's colors, for its colours and for the many details of the season...
Thanks, my friend, for the nice summer mood of your remarkable photo!

Ahhh I ssoooooo want to be here! It's so cold and damp here! This would be so nice to be around the pool! Nice shot! Great way to level the tones!

Hello Chris !
Hello Chris !

Great to see people are enjoying again the beaches and resorts after the tsunami. Hopefully the life is back to normal for everybody after the tragic event. If major hotels, have the ressources to rebuilt, it is not the case for most of the local people, often not covered with any insurance.

Lovely lines and perspective indeed. Well done.
Have a great day,

Hello Chris,
This is a very beautiful place and you've capture it very well using the curve to lead us in the photo with these superb colors and very warmt atmosphere.

Well composed shot. Very good details. I want to be there!

Hello Chris, this is a beautiful beach photo and the curve of the swimming pool and the people is a bonus, repeated by the curve of the beach and the palm trees leaning towards the sea. It is very dynamic!

Beautiful colours and the image is very sharp! Great work my friend!

Great work! Take care, Yan!

Ps: many thx for your crit and visit in "Golden Retriever Playing in the Snow (2)" :)


Hi Chris,

Lovely scene! I like your composition, which is utilizing the pool's curves to divide the frame in a nice way, the wonderful colors, specially the pool's blue and the great DOF.
