Walking around the resort next door, the Sol Rio de Luna & Mares , while Martine visited the beauty shop and our friend Yanet working there, I had a twenty minutes photo hunt session, while ladies were busy.

Here I am on the 4th level balcony facing the bay.Below this roof the rooms of the waterfront rooms.

Technically, Image rotated slightly to correct the horizon, therefore cropped as well. Filtered with Neat Image, Resized, Titled.

hi Robert. excellent composition and tones! only 2 words for
this. . . simply Beautiful! ;) Tfs


Hi Robert,
So y'r back from Cuba. Looking at this shot gives me great memories of this beautiful island and very pleasant people overthere! Anyway you second TL-posting after your well earned holiday is full of nice colour contrast. So I do remember the Caribbean ky and sea. Excellent my friend. Welcome back on TL!

Blue skies, blue sea, red roofs... what a perfect view. Glad you both enjoyed your trip to Cuba. This is a very good point of view and good strong colours.
Hope the kiddies liked their bears.

hello robert!
wonderful view on this beautiful sea with excellent colors and perspective.

Hola Robert,
nice angle of shot and view looking ahead. Interesting your point of view. The colors combination looks great. I absolutely love the blue of the sky and water bound with the red of that tiles. Nicely seen and presented!

Kindly regards,

ps: points will follow :)

Salut Robert
Bonne perspective et belle couleurs pour cette belle scène. Présentation créative. TL n'était pas pareil pendant ton absence, bon retour.


Salut Robert. Wow ! Quelle magnifique prise de vue. À faire rêver ! Composition très originale. Les couleurs sont parfaites. Félicitations. J'ai bien hâte de voir les prochaines photos. Salutations. Dany :-)

Very nice composition! It gives you the desire for sea and sun. Beautiful colours and perspective

Welcome back Robert !


Hi Robert,
Welcome back, as usual another great shot, I like the way you have used the roof to lead you into the seascape, that water sure looks inviting.
Tfs Andy

The colours attracted me and then those red tiles - such an unusual and interesting angle. I love this! :-) Lesley

I like a lot the colour contrast between the roof and the sea/sky. Very effective composition too.

hmm.... the time for vacations is there!
almost.... hihi
a real lovely view Robert.. wonderful.
The colors are amazing.
I wanna go there.. wanna see it... wanna taste it. Heck, I'll even smoke a sigar!
(Just as long as you won't let my husband read this!!!)


P.s.: glad to have you back in one piece and I hope in good health! ;-)

Outstanding shot: idea, composition, colours, sharpness!!!

Hi Robert:
I think the rising clouds add so much to you image here...
reducing brightness gives a very appealing look to the image(A polorizer filter will also do that, which you have used:)
Crystal cleat horizen like a line is excellent in the view!

What a bright and colourful scene Robert.
Good to have you back with all your photos for us. It must be a bit sad for you to leave Cuba tho.
An interesting 3-layered image here with the different colours and textures. Well done

Well seen; great POV; very well taken! Visual impact photo!

Hi Robert :o)
Happy to see you again :o) With such a wonderful shot ! Great colours and POV. I'm sure you've had a splendid time in Cuba. I would like to be there and relax ! TFS


Amazing view! Excellent vivid colour tones & contrast! I really like the perspective that you chose!

Very well done

Hi Robert,
Wow, stunning colours together! Beautiful view and I love the cloud formations. Gorgeous and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

Salut Robert,
Long time no see .
Beau point de vue avec ces tuiles de toit dont la couleur contraste parfaitement avec le bleu de la mer . Bon retour .

Hi Robert welcome back. The colours on this are fantastic and although the red roof is dominant [to me an angry colour] the lines of the tiles take the eye to the calm blue of the sea and sky

Bonjour Robert,
Quand je lis que tu as corriger l'horizon, je me sens moins "nono" de devoir le faire qlq fois sur les mienne, à ta suggestion fort pertinente d'ailleurs ! Pas de saturation de couleur ou de correction de niveau ? Surprenant, c'est un résultat très riche assorti d'une belle composition. Brvo !

Salut Robert,
Je vois que vous êtes de retour....avec pleins de "souvenirs" visuels.
Je t'avais demandé de rapporter du soleil de Cuba...il n'y a aucuns doutes...avec une photo comme celle-là.....la mission est réussie.....
Non on ne se tanne jamais de voir les merveilleuses couleurs de Cuba....
Superbe prise au point de vue très original...

Hi Robert,
now thats a different POV .. were you tanning on the roof top? Love the color contrasts on this one and all the different layers of colors.
Very well done.

Superb combination of reddish brown and blue-green. Great compo, POV and light.



you did very well here (again :-) )
The refreshing complementary between the orange and blues, add to that with excellent POV, nice focus and pin sharpness, makes this a really stunning image.

Well done.
Best regards, Daniel

Nice view, lovely colors & sharpness. Well done.

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!!!

Such fantastic details, and the colours are beyond sublime... there's a good chance we might be heading to Cuba for two weeks this December... or maybe the Virgin Islands, anyways! I'm definately in favour of Cuba now... and since we've been to The Dominican Republic... I know Cuba will be just as nice.

But ah man Robert, this image does not have a single flaw... those colours, are so beautiful. And the scene, I can just imagine one of the hotel workers sitting on the roof sneaking a quick smoke on the roof. ;P



Hello my friend...

I see that it liked beaches of Cuba, Yes who would not like of this paradise that this place.
It is only to look and to admire such beauty, still more being portrayed by you.
Great capture, beautiful visual


C'est une division intéressante sur une vision bien spéciale! Je me demandais du Thumbmail, quel étrange champs labouré.... formes si exagérés et cette couleur.... Quoi ne fait pas cette tête! À la base.. c'est du sol que viennent ces tuiles. J'espère que tu ne va pas nous faire le coup de Ben-Hur en faisant tomber des dalles le temps de cette photos. Je sais bien que tu est dans le domaine des bateau... Les fonds de galères, je ne suis pas sur que tu ca aimer :)
Quel contraste avec l'océan bleu si profond! C'est un angle très intéressant!

Wonderful colors Robert! Excellent idea to let the roof tiling form the bottom of the picture...

Bonjour Robert
La perspective convergente de ces tuiles et la pente du toît entraînent inexorablement la vue vers le jade de la mer.
Et là, plus rien nous inquiète pour une petite croisière on voilier, le ciel étant radieux!
Au plaisir!

wonderfull view, wonderfull capture and color
