[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The incessant technological progress makes the instruments lose very slightly also the value of this tool.
I still crawl in the use of the DSLR and already glimpse the new world of the cell phone.
So I will begin to practice and display for criticism and advice the little that has quality.
After all, is not that the reason for the existence of sites like TL?

Hi Raimundo,
This one certainly breaks the Rule of Thirds, a nice colour gradient in the sky. Often a low horizon works well but I think I would like to have seen more of the sea

Hi Raimundo,

The palm tree is helping to frame the scene. The islands in the distance are creating depth. The point of view is showing the details of the palm tree and of the islands. The light is giving good colors rendering. Have a nice day.


Rules are there to be broken :-) Your shot shows the reason why.
Cell phones are very good at what they do. Small sensors work well when there's enough
light. I like your shot because it emphasizes the vastness of the sky compared to the Islands and the tree. It is also a beautiful sky. Well done Raimundo
