1.29 p.m. - This shot was taken along the beach at Berakas Forestry Recreational Park situated along the Muara highway and about 15 minutes drive from the town centre. It is usually a busy place during weekends as it has facilities for BBQ, huts for resting and showers for those who like to take a dip in the sea.
I decided to take this shot at standing height as I wanted the effect of the wet sand and the subtle reflection of the sky to be the main attraction in this scene. The colours are slightly saturated to enhance the blue as it was not a very bright day.

Wonderful reflections of the blue grey clouds in the wetr sand. Perhaps a little oversharpened? I like the diffused light & diagonal of the shoreline. Bagus!

A nice beach perspective with water dynamic, it does not look very crowded... I like the wet sand area as often on beach photos becauses it allows a subtle reflection of the clouds and brings etxtra brightness here on this cloudy day.
Have a nice day,

Excelent angle approach and perspective and the effect of the wet sand and the subtle reflection of the sky are really a great attraction in this scene and capture. Good colors and light handling. Fine enquadrement view of the each. Well seen and well composed. Congratulations and TFS.

Beautiful relaxing scenery, with soft colours and lighting. Excellent mood too. I like this silence...

Hi Aloysius. You better watch out or that wave is going to get you! I kept playing chicken with the waves at one of the beaches during my last vacation and it gave me two soggy shoes! :) The horizon it ruler flat. Very nice one Aloysius.

A well comosed shot of this beach scene. I especially like the smooth foreground sand with the reflected water. The eye moves outward and discerns various layers of water. The distant figures on the beach give perspective. Well captured.

Well composed scene and view with soft colors.
Also the perspective is very good and the wet sand adds to the photo.Excellent work!

What a great soft light you captured there ! So exotic to me, from Paris !
Simple but effective.

The light was not great but you got a fine result here, with well balanced colours. I really liked the smoothness and texture and the sky reflection on the wet sand is great.

I believe this Lumix have giving you the satisfactory of capturing and producing cool and exquisite shots.
Truely, it is.
The softness of the image and the clarity and sharpness is very good. There's a "half-fight" with the DSLR, isn't it.
Wonderful shot, Aloysius.
And hope to see your next post again.

A great beach image!
Here you have all the essencials... the sand, the surf, the sky! You even capture some visitors in a distance...
Very fine lines in your dynamic, well balanced composition!

I ike this beautifull composition with a large place for the sand and the waves.
jhm (156536) 2006-04-07 11:59
Excellent perspective, you chose the perfectly angle, I can follow the waves to the end, the wet sand looks very nicely and the people are a nice addition.
Thanks a lot,
Have a nice weekend,
