[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This brightly painted building commanded our attention as we got off the tender for our day on the beach feeding and swimming with the stingrays. I knew I had seen this yellow and green shack before; I think it was in a painting, but I'm not sure. But the feeling struck me very strongly that I had gazed upon this sight before. The sign on the door just to the left of my crop read "Photo Lab".

PP work--a strong rotation to level the horizon, bumped the contrast (20), cloned sensor dust out of the sky. Framed, sized and sharpened.

Hello Karen,
This is a nice tropical scenery to brighten my dark December day!
I like the clarity of colours... fine contrast between the yellow and green, and the nice composition where the palm trees are eye-catchers!

Excellent colors Karen.Green and Yellow combination along with
the Blue sky is very lovely.The composition of the picture adds
a lots of aesthetics to be photo.

Hi Karen,
Right after critiquing a fantastic winter landscape I came to tropical summer... Fantastic shot with great colors. As I see the photo, POV could have been a bit better if You walked a few steps back, but only You know whether it was possible or not. Nice lights, strong contrast. Great image.
Tfs, congrats. Cheerz, László
