[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Our cruise stopped in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and we spent some time on the beach. A concrete pier juts out toward the ocean; these colorful chairs were lined up along the length of the pier, inviting us to recline and absorb some of the warm Jamaican sun.

I cropped, sharpened, added a small amount of saturation and contrast, and cloned out the head of a swimmer that popped up above the surf behind one of the chairs just as I snapped.

Hello Sandy

great pov and dof.
I like this line of chairs and shadows too.
Jamaica is so cOOl.
Beautiful composition like a postcard.
Best regards

Ha!! ... I love this kind of shot Sandy! Great eye to see this .. I really like the simplicity .. no need for anything else in the shot. Chairs nicely placed diagonally across the frame. Hmm, I might have given the saturation just a slight boost .. and maybe you tried that.
Have a nice Sunday!

  • Great

dear Sandy,
lovely and colorful view shot of wonderful chairs on the beach,
the light and colors are so hot, and the green sea looks emerald,
nobody needs here, chairs are enjoying this fine condition here,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hi Sandy,
This is a real 'feel good' type of image. The things I'd do to be sitting in one of those deck chairs in the sun right now :). Well chosen POV, the chairs look good poking through the horizon. To be ultra picky, the horizon is a tiny bit crooked, but it's nothing serious. Good job.


I love Ochos Rios. Went there for the honeymoon. A beautiful area and location. This is a very cool shot. I think the second picture of your's I have clicked on today. You have some amazing shots. Keep it up.

Bom dia Sandy
I don┤t know how I miss so much photos from you...The first thing I notice in the softness of the colors chairs...they look so friendly. Hearing the name Jamaica I will have the Idea of strong colors...and this is so sweet to the eyes. Tne main impact is done for the graphism that these wonderful chairs made.
You give me the sense that Jamaica is still better than I imagine it.
There is a sweetness unexespect for me.
Once again I remarke the excelence of your capture. It seem that world stop to you make click.
Unique this photo.
