El Nido, one of the best Beach and Island destination in the Philippines for its "extraordinary natural splendor and ecosystem."... The shore itself is the gateway only of El Nido's greatest natural treasure can offer...Though it took us 6hours drive from the Capital of Palawan and sitting is such a pain, it's really worth seeing the stunning island and one of the world's most beautiful seascapes.

Hi Chris,
A fantastic setting and well thought out composure.High contrasting green and red of the canoes in the foreground a great eye catcher and then one is drawn into the beauty of natures warm colors. Most definately worth the long sit. Interesting boat movement in the front and the rest pinsharp. Great job.

Hi Chris,
This is a great image with true environment conveyed. I mean it makes me feel I'm there, it's credible with no visible exagerations, except for the wide angle distortion on the left.
The composition is nice too with that colorful foreground.


Amazing seascape ! Love the lighting and the colors !
Very well balanced, it looks like a professional work.

Hi Chris
I like this composition with its several striking elements. Amazing sky and good light in the whole scene.


Hi Chris, the canoes contrast nicely with the outriggers on the silky smooth waters. Nice pov with the clouds drifting around the hill. Fiona

Beautiful scene, good management of light in a very contrasting scene. I would have liked a bit less crowded water scene , but you can not have everything.

Hi, Chris. This is a beautiful composition of the sunset taken at the right moment when the colors of the best in saturation. The boat and the distant hills and the contrasting textures and different objects had to the scene. Very well done.

I like the exposure length used.
Great texture on the water.


Hi Chris,
A real stunner. The composition with the canoes on the left balancing the colorful sky is perfect. Love the motion in the rocking boats and the silk touch on the water. Exposure with the use of the reverse grad is absolutely stunning.


Now its time to give critique as it is part of the experience on TL.
