What a beautiful smile for someone who has such a hard life. While hard labor surrounds her, perfectly captured by you, her colorful sweater and bright smile light up the scene. It's a very poignant photo, and I was also struck by the last line of your note.

What amazing colors! I've never seen a beach like this before, with so many bright stones. I like how you filled the foreground with them, and then draw us away into the distance, and towards the water. The lone person with colorful clothes is in just the right spot. Very nice! :-)

I really like your POV from inside the boat. This boy looks very serious, and I also like all of the traditional homes in the background. The WS made by Tyro does a nice job removing the plate, but it doesn't detract much from the photo, even while it's still there. I feel like we are also along for the ride.

This place seems so far removed from the rest of the world. There is a calmness and simplicity, but I'm sure that life is not as easy as it seems there. I like the row of small houses, and the colorful clothes of the people in the foreground. It's a very nice scene.

Beautiful shot of the falls before they started to get icy. I visited many years ago in October, and they were already getting frozen. I like the high POV, looking down at the tourists, and giving us a wide view of the mist and the water. The greenery in the background is very nice, too.

I see you found "nirvana" there in Belize. :-) It's nice that there is a painting referencing the Mayan culture, but the rest of the scene looks like many other tourists destinations, with duty free shops and lots of visitors. I like the bright colors, and it's nice to see a photo from Belize, which seems less represented than other Central American countries here on TE.

This is a lovely scene. There is also a park in Boston where they have the same kind of swan boats. It's funny to see these large "birds" on the water, with numbers on their tails. They seems to be having a swan meeting. :-)

I like this simple daily life view. The setting is tropical, and even in January Cuba must have very warm temperatures, since these four are wearing summer clothes. I also like that they are all holding hands as they walk along this quiet road.

The different colors of the water in this photo are beautiful. There is a very tropical feeling, and I like the placement of the tree off to the left. The details in the foreground, and the hills in the distance, make a nice top and bottom to this scene, too.

I really like the story behind this beautiful photo. This young mother and teacher has a kind face and sweet smile, and her pink headscarf jumps out, but I also like the smiling boy in the background, and the overall composition of this shot. The WS photos are also wonderful. It's a great package that conveys daily life and also emotion.
