My son lies in the sun..... Another beautiful day in Palawan...

RAW - corrected the horizon, using layers just increased the contrast of the clouds, cloned out a couple of leaves and flotsam on the sand et voila...

1/100sec at f9, ISO100 and +0.3EV at 10mm.

Hi David,
Nice minimalist shot. Great color, fantastic mood. I hope your son had plenty of sunscreen on!

Ha! Fantastic ... love the expansive view you've got here ... so much sky, that beautiful sea, and your son on the hard packed sand of the beach .. great one! love it!

Hello David,

This is one of the best compositions I have ever seen. Wow. Thanks a ton for this.


Hello David,

This is a great photo! Nice work lining up the horizon! The scenery is excellent and I wouldnt mind being on that beach right now! Nice colors under a nice sky with great clouds.

Well done!

Interesting shot David! love the composition! good exposure too! the polarizer did well to the scene... well balanced tones... great job! TFS

Hello David!
What a fanzastic atmosphere and what a lovely place!
Beautiful water, great sky!
Best regards!

Ha! Wicked shot! Love the composition and POV, although personally I'd crop it from the top and right, until the horizon line was at the 1/3rd point and your son filled a little more of the lower part of the frame.

Colour tones seem a little too yellow.

Great concept though and a very creative delivery!


Wow this is really wide. I love the high def of the clouds. The fact that you show this person alone is interesting. It is just him in the whole beach. Well done. Sothy

Well Done David! I love the superwide effect here! Well composed and technically very good, a fine post indeed! Thanks.


Ha, terrific!

Your son lying down is top notch with this angle :-))

Oh man, I need this kind of chilling so bad...!!
