[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken from the bangka boat approaching Cadlao Island in the Bacuit Archipelago near El Nido. El Nido is a popular resort area at the top of Palawan Island. The snorkeling over the fringing coral reef here wasnt bad either.

'El Nido' is Spanish for 'The Nest'. Thousands of swifts & swallows nest in the cliffs & birds nest soup is still very popular in China. The birds secrete a resin to affix the nests to the steep rocky cliff faces, or the roof of caves.

Bom dia Chris,
As usual a great entry and very good shot. Nice POV/DOF, warm colors and green variations, great clarity and nice composition.

Hi Chris
the (good) shot forgotten but the place probably not. amazing green tones up and down. paradise on earth. so pleasant and peaceful (when the crowd is gone...:)

Olá chris
I really hope you never forgot this kind of view and colors...they are still now for me your trademark?. I see this and I know I am looking a Chris photo. There is the special light, the dreamy colors...oh you. make me miss summer and forget the spring.
Never forget it...I don´t.
have a good WE
Um abraço

Hi Chris,

Wonderful green tones, lovely beach, perfect POV and DOF. Great natural light.
Parabéns e um grande abraço,

The water here is SO nice Chris!! Love that GREEN! Looks like pure heaven to me! Nice sharpness, very simple shot!

I like the bending palm trees against the greenish waters, Chris!

Amazing focus and clarity you have achieved in this scene.
The colors are natural and light is well handled.
A good entry to today's theme.

Have a nice weekend.

Kind regards,

tu as des trésors à nous montrer, quelle iamge sueprbe palge avec les palmiers cet couleur de l'eau, superb eiamge et captage.

Bravo et amitié


Hi Chris,

The palm trees are framing well the beach. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the trees, of the beach and of the sea. The late morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Wow, spectacular greens in this one ... the water and the jungle behind. The little hut in the trees really provides some perspective, and a sense of scale.

Hi Chris,

Splendid contrast of colors between the sea and the forest, amazing image of the Island.
A wonderful place to take a holiday, much needed after Christmas and new year. I like very much the détails of the palm trees.
My best regards.

Hello Chris, an idyllic scene;I expect Robinson Crusoe to appear any moment!
How could you forget this place?
The greens of the sea and the vegetation are so bright and very beautiful.
Lovely textures and excellent DoF.
[The idea of eating birds nest soup does not sound inviting, have you ever tasted it?]
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Chris, how the hell could you forget this.. Love the little hut hiding in the trees. Fiona

Such a nice location! The water color is amazing. It looks like emerald.


Hello Chris

Looks like you hiding a piece of Heaven from us. A very beautiful image of the beach and visions of me lying their and soaking up the warm tropical sun. TFS
