The island of Kerkennah
Quiet and peaceful with no crowds few shops and hardly any traffic. They are ideal for those wishing to do a little more than laze the days away on sun drenched golden beaches. First impressions of Kerkennah are a hypnotic expanse of wind blowing palms and a totally flat sandy landscape. The sea is so shallow that hundred meters from the shore, the clear, and unpolluted water is still below waist. Kerkennah is reached by ferry from the busy mainland port of Sfax. There is one reasonably large village, Remla, 10 minutes drive from the hotels area. The local people are warm and hospitable and there are many friendships forged between holidaymakers and local families. Nightlife is limited and the only bright lights you are likely to find are the brilliant stars, which appear nightly overhead!

Nice photo you have here. Good perspective of the beach with these palm trees.The colours and sharpness are also fine. Nice you caught the moon.I've been in Sfax in 94, but not on the beach, it was quite a fast visit.

compo and pov is very nice.
I think that picture only needs more contrast and sharpnes (is posible that litle more saturation...)

Thanks for sharing this beautiful photo of Tunisia. I'm just back from visiting parts of your country and really enjoyed my visit. I found the people very friendly and the scenery amazingly beautiful.

Hi Ahmed, this is beautiful. Very nice point of view, blue sky and the moon looks great. Thanks for sharing.
Also thank you for editing my Prague photo in workshop. Colours were much better than in my original version. I appreciate your work.
Greetings from north, Anne

I thought I had critiqued this one already, because it's one of my favourites. You show very nicely that long empty beach with its funny palm trees. A veruy romantic postcard, in which even the moon is present.
