The Wedding gazebo!

.... over the Esmeralda Bay and corral reefs!

Much cooler than a City Hall or a Hall of Justice . This cool place is getting busier year after year. As we left on April 30th, 275 weddings were done or booked to date in 2006 at the Hotel.....

The spot and the service at the resort are great reasons for this popularity.

With Photoshop CS.
Cropped photo.
Adjusted tones, levels, contrasts and luminosity.
Added frame and title.

I started to reply to comments and critiques. It looks like I will need more time before being more active :(.
Sorry for the delays out of my control!

Hi Robert!
Excellent frame, matching with dominant color of the picture. Sharp and well composed, keeping the attention on the main subject. Beautiful blue colors, contrasting nicely with the white of the Gazebo.

Salut Robert,
Ces couleurs là sont superbes. J'aime bien cette prise de vue qui nous invitent à avancer pour s'installer dans ce gazebo.
Très bien réussi.

Bonjour Robert,
Excellente prise. On dirait la coque d'un navire s'avancant sur la mer. Couleurs très nettes, surtout ce bleu intense et profond. J'aime bien cette coupole qui pourrait tenir lieu d'un voile de mariée! Bravo ! Annie

Wow! This is a beautiful setting for a wedding. The mansion where I used to work was oftened used for weddings. There is a peristyle in the garden there similar to this one, although not as ornate.
Great colors, images and composition. TFS,

C'est ce que l'on appelle se jeter à l'eau Robert?
On se croirait en grèce.
Belle position de capture et image bien cadrée et encadrée.
Bien fait!

Super Trooper shot Rob!
TFS and points later

Interesting place with fresh beach, wind & sun. Good composition & nice frame.
If I was in toronto 3 years ago, I would select here for my wedding ceremony for sure.
Have a nice long weekend.

Hi Robert,
I think this is an acceptable place for wedding.... I clearly understand why this place is busy. It's like a beautiful dreamworld -by the time of the wedding who cares about coming daily things - everyone of us would thinking about the endless happiness as the ocean in your picture.
I think I have to start saving some money....

Upps - I almost forget to tell you that your picture and the applied PP work is very good!!:)


Placid, crisp - and begging for a focal point/person! A great scenic shot anyway.

Hi Robert

Romantic spot.
Great white and blue combination.
