[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was fortunate to be invited to Playa del Carmen, near to Cancún, with my daughter, her husband and their three children (my oldest grandchildren) for a week, during the New Years Eve. Only one day we had rain; the rest of the days were beautiful. I wish to all TL Members a Happy New Year 2014 full of love, health and Blessings.

Hi Maria,
A nice beach shot with such turquious water.
I like the low POV and the positioning of the beach hut with the birds resting on the roof.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Bom dia Lorena,
Thank you for this beautiful card happy holidays.
I express the same wishes to you and your loved ones.
I hope the pelicans found a great observatory have done good fishing.
Almost idyllic scene.
Fine shot.

nice shot of the beach with the hut.

good colors and textures of the sea

Hi Maria

Please accept that these are my personal opinions only and are meant to be constructive.
I find that most of he interest is on the left hand side, the right hand side is mostly empty water. Maybe if you had waited for the jet ski to move further to the right, this would have improved the balance. Also I think the clouds are too blue, possibly where you have tried to increase the sauration or contrast in this area. I also think the focus is a little soft and not as sharp as it could be.

As I said, my opinion only.

Hi Maria,
A beautiful place. Wonderful colors and a very pleasing scene. TFS Julie

Love the pelicans sitting on top of the hut.....
richly colored, interesting version of a somewhat typical beach photo....

Hi Maria...beautiful shot. Excellent tones and colors. Nice work.


Hi Maria,
What a beautiful setting, just so relaxing as is portrayed in your image.Even the pelicans are at peace, something I could do with. Lovely post card perfect.
