[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Playa Rincon in Samana, Dominican Republic. This bay of sandy beaches and turquoise waters is said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is in a remote corner of Dominican Republic, in the Samana area, about a 4 hours drive east from Puerto Plata.

The remoteness of the area has kept this beach totally free of hotels and resorts in a pristine state. However with more and more tourists coming to this area, one wonders if this breathtaking place will retain its unspoilt beauty for much longer. So I am glad that I had a chance to see this place, walk on its sandy beaches and swim in the beautiful waters before the almost inevitable hotels and resorts spring up.

Hi Sunil.

Perfect position adopted for this capture of a beautiful location. For me the shape and clarity in and around the main palm tree and its leaves against this sky holds and balances this amazing scene, perfect framing to present, welldone. tfs

stv ;))

Indeed! It is beautiful tropical scene even with the dark clouds! Makes me homesick of my old country the Philippines. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.
