Hello friends in TL.

This girl still in her diaper would probably like to send a postcard to her parents living further up the northern hemisphere. She had the whole beach to herself playing with the sand under the watchful eyes of her grands (out of the picture). Thanks for viewing.

hi Jusni

I will surely buy this postcard. The scenery, color tone and sunny day all fits a postcard. The little girl may be near to the the edge to draw much attention but still is a good inclusion, as your composition is mostly guided by the stone cliff.

It is a nice beach for children play.

tfs, bill

Hi Jusni

This shot doesn't quite have the magnetism of your previous shots - the composition is a little less powerful in terms of horizon, and I do think you could have gone with a slightly higher ISO to gather more light, this just feels a little dark overall, especially in the shadows.

That said, it is a delight to view, beautiful subject and I just love the placement of the child, a detail to discover!

Well composed postcard, Jusni. You captured well the beauty of the tropical beach.

Hi Jusni beautiful colors of nature in this image. Little girl works well here. Beautiful nature image. Well done. Regards - Adil.

Hi Jusni,
Nice postcard from a great place! Fantastic beach scene, well captured, excellent representation of the sky, sea, clouds, vegetation. Perfect composition, TFS.
Best wishes,

HI Jusni

You definitely caught the look of her being alone, in this beautiful bay with a quiet tide.
Well done

Assalamualaikum Jusni,

a beautiful postcard of an inviting place indeed. nice composition. you have an interesting FG subject here and the inclusion of the girl really adds to the liveliness. nice shore curve as a lead-in line to somewhere which (to my eyes) looks something like a dumpsite. i like the pristine water.

Hi Jusni,
What a beach! Looks so secluded. Nicely composed to include the trees as well. Beautiful colours too.

Lots of things to see and look at here. I think your choices of what to include and what not makes this image work well along with all the varied and rich colors and the little girl on the right as well.
All kinds of things for the eye to discover and enjoy.
I find that, for me anyway, I wish there was a bit more light in the trees, the green is very lush this way, but I think a bit more light could help.
Good work though, it's a very nice view.

Hi my friend Jusni,

An another impressive shot of this beautiful coastal side in in all around. Colours, details and composition are great.
TFS and cheers,

Assalamualaikum Jusni,
nice shot of this sandy beach and great sea of Penang.
As always, beautiful sky and lovely clouds.
Great contrast and the softness of the water is very inviting.
