[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken late afternoon just before sunset, so there is a slight yellow red color temperature tint. Looking east towards Las Cabanas & Dolarog resorts in the far distance. Not polarized but I added more saturation.

The resort town of El Nido is about 2 km away. El Nido is at the top of Palawan Island in the western Philippines. An 18mm to 55 mm lens with VR was used.

Oh, love this one Chris. I like the "V" created by the edge of the trees and the line of waves. Great faintly silhouetted island in the far distance too. Lovely shot... beautiful colors.

Nice composition, great motion in the photo. I can feel the tropics! Nice work Chris.

Idyllic and postcardesque once again, great proportions between beach and sky and trees. Pleasant warm colours and I love the distant shape of the headlands.

Hi Chris,
An awesome beach shot in this vertical format giving ample space for the lovely palm trees leaning vertically over this light green agitated sea.
Very warm atmosphere in this tranquil shot. Nice POV with a remarkable DOF.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Chris,
Superb composition. The vertical format is a good choice, here, we have the feeling to walk on this beach! Great perspective and really natural colors not too much saturated. How, I would like to be there right now! Annie

My kind of place!

What a wonderful beach scene from such a great POV, Chris!
The picture is razor-sharp and the overall quality of the work is A+.
The colors are amazing.
Well done!


Hi Chris.
Lovely beach site captured with beautiful composition and amazing framing filled by the palm trees.
Best Wishes

Hi Chris,

Wonderfull vertical framing , the deph of field is supêrb.
The détails of the palm trees and the colors are wonderfull, great light and clarity.
Colors are splendid, very good job.
Best regards.

Hi Chris,
Beautiful seascape well presented and composed,
Excellent POV. and DOF. with great colors and light,
I like the palm trees and vertical format..
Great tropic post card and beach....

You chose the right moment of the day to shoot this Chris , best time for tones is before sunset , admittedly there isn't much beach to walk on nevertheless the view is great down its length to the appealing hills in the hazy distance , makes me want to take a plane out , thanks for sharing ,

Boa noite chris
Beautiful perspective , good light and colors. It breath a special mood from there.
Happy New year.
um abraço

Hi Chris,

The palm trees are framing well the beach. The point of view is sending my eyes toward the mountain which is giving depth to the composition. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Great POV again. Perfect control of natural light and an excellent work!
Parabéns e um grande abraço,
