[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Its a bit chilly down here in New Zealand so here is a holiday snap from Samoa taken at Aggie Grey's Lagoon a few months ago.
There is not a lot to do there except snorkel and drink beer but you get used to it eventually.
Samoa is a 3 hr flight North of New Zealand, the local people are lovely.

Hard work Jack but some bodies got to do it !!!

Well thought out composition with 3 simple layers and nice colours.

Great composition and well planned photo. The color is also very nice and I can see this image in an advertisement. TFS

Hello Jack,
A nice summer shot with fantastic lighting!
A good job indeed!
An original aspect to depict summer!
A pair of flippers, a cane umbrella and a beautiful sandy beach.
A marvellous sea with beautiful colors.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hai jackal, Fantastic shot, good composition & presentation. I like the way you frame it.
with regards, Image mohandas, Kerala, INDIA.

Viewing this makes me understand how much I need a holiday!!!! At least here in Malta summer is on the doorstep!!

Love the colours, the blue sky, tourquise water, sandy beach. It is indeed a holiday advertising compo.

My compliments

Haha, good one Jack. Yup it's a tough life, but I'm sure I could get used to it quite quickly too!
Lovely shot .. colors are great throughout, the grass roof is a great frame for the top or the shot, and the silhouetted fins are great also.
I'd love to visit this area.

Nice! The colours are fantastic. Do I detect some post-work to even-out the levels of the grass roof vs. that sky, or is this as-is from the camera?
