I thought I should find a tropical scene to warm and lift TL viewers' spirit on this cold mid winter day. A temporary respite from my usual flora posting.

Shot in 2004 in Panglao, Bohol. Panglao is famous for its world class diving locations and is home to numerous tourist resorts. I always stay at the pristine Alona Beach whenever I visit.

Wow.....I love this shot. The different layers of color are like perfect puzzle pieces interlocking together. You tamed the light reflection on the water very nicely. The only thing I'd like to see is the clouds brought out a little bit more. Good work.

Wonderful collection of blues and I love those palm trees on the horizon. Excellent composition



Oh! But, this is the paradise on earth! It is too nice to be true :-) There must be marine monsters and many sharks, it's too beautiful :) Those colors are very impressive. I like those great tones of blue, composition, POV and exposure. Excellent DOF too. This is wonderful! You should see the weather here, it is the perfect antipode. Thanks,

Hello Danilo, Very nice sea colors indeed. Very composition and DOF. Palm trees far away but very visible and inviting.

TFS, Marie-José

Superbes différences de couleurs de cette mer...
C'est très beau.

Félicitations !

Superb combination of three colors-white, light blue, dark blue. It must be fascinating to visit those tropical beaches with their white sand.
