A nice shot from happy holidays, Carol!
Great mood and well thought color treatment to the overall scenario in the picture make this work eyecatching.
I like the chraming expressions on the face of the woman.
The sharpness and POv are well chosen.

A nice family shot in this moody presentation. I like the B&W version here. It gives more impact to the ambient! Great gray scales while contrast is at the trees side. A rather cloudy and dull day while the water looks warm enough that your wife seems to be enjoying heartily!
A nice smile from her behalf!
My best regards,

I like this old style B&W photo. reminds me a scene from an old movie.
good capture of pleasant mood.
fine pov for keeping the rule of thirds in the composition.
Aw Carol, this is really nice. It makes me smile.
Photographically speaking, it's also really great. The B&W tones are spectacular, and your composition with Gisele off to the right, the tree line from the top corner, and that ominous looking sky in the background. All fantastico!!
I've always wanted to go to Fiji. 1999 huh? That's a few years ago.
Have a great week

Boa noite Carol
You take good photos for many years already...You made a delicious portrait of Gisèle and a good perspective of the beauty of the palce...gisèle helps the harmony and pleasure of the place and make it unique...I am always impressed for the number of yourb travellers...you must have thousands of photos, of good photos.

I love the depth and the light of this image, but specially the contrast between the dramatic sky obscured by clouds and the smile of genuine hapiness of the lady in the water... I imagine it was warm...
My compliments, mb

The tones and contrast are phantastic in this scan though I would't photograph the tropics in B+W myself[except of course to record some social injustice or other human suffering].The X700 is a great camera,have one myself.Best of wishes Otto.

Very nice capture especially that it is in B&W. Yes, I grow up in the Philippines and rain comes in bucket. Great pov and good contrast. Well done, tfs.

This image is really powerful, looks like a unreal place... the cloudy-foggy sky, the absence of accessory elements (just the well placed on frame model, the shore and the boat), the b/w, and the POV from the water.
Really a great one, i love it.
