Changuu Island (also known as Kibandiko, Prison or quarantine island) is an island northwest of Stone Town, Zanzibar. The island was used as a prison for rebellious slaves in 1860 and also worked as a mine coral. The Prime Minister of Zanzibar, Lloyd Mathews, bought the island in 1893 and built a prison complex there. She became a quarantine station for yellow fever cases. More recently, the island has become a tourist resort owned by the government and houses a collection of giant Aldabra tortoises that were originally a gift from the British governor of Seychelles

C'est bien composé avec cette étoile de mer en premier plan, la vue a une très grande profondeur et un jli contraste entre le premier plan clair et le bleu de l'eau plus loin, belle luminosité.

Questa è bellissima. Mi piace molto la composizione verticale, e le bande dei diversi colori, sopratutto nell'acqua! E naturalmente le stelle marine, la prima inanzitutto, da un punto originale. Complimenti!

This is a very artistic composition. I love the starfish in the fg.I like the layers of colour too with the paler sand and then the dark band of water topped by the lighter coloroud water.The boats are perfectly placed. This one to be printed and hung on a wall.

A wonderful shot! I enjoy the balance of the composition with the starfish in the FG and the two boats further back. I also like the 'layers' of colours and textures in this vertical image. Excellent exposure, sharpness and colour.
Kind Regards, Ann

The format was very well chosen and I like the composition with the two boats and also the starfish in foreground. The different colours of the water are excellent!
