This photograph is taken from the room of a hotel. The sea in Okinawa differs in a color compared with the sea of a mainland. There are many layers in a marine color and it is interesting. West coast ib Okinawa facing South China Sea has many resort facilities. It is the reason a wave is quiet, compared with East coast facing the Pacific Ocean.

This is a very nice view and a harmonious composition. The diagonal of the beach is a fine feature and it is well placed, roughly one third from the corner. The two persons on the beach provide a lot of life. The colours are beautiful but I find the photo slightly dark. It would have benefitted from some minor adjustments bringing out more clarity of the colours.

Okinawa is almost tropical similar to south east asia! not sure except you miss the palm coconut trees perhaps. This photo just reflects the sunny beach scape from high viewpoint as the sunshine brightens up the view and pick out some of the colours of water and sand. Love the use of diagonal in the composition as the shades in the water combine creating a beautiful scene. Those tiny figures and the tree give dimension and perspective to the whole image scale and contrasts well. Beautiful capture, great photo works, Congrats

Ohh what a great sandy beach! I like the diagonal placement in the frame with the tree to dominates the image and the people on the beach to create scale in the image.Great presentation,as capture too.

Nice dominant point of view on the beach. Good frame quality of the trees.
Carefull with the lights; the sand might give an underexposure.
I have done a WS.

I was here over 37 years ago, and what impressed me the most was how clean and up-kept the beaches were, along with how friendly the people were.
Very nice high POV showing two people on the beach, giving great depth. I like the natural color saturation here and superb light management. Clarity is perfect, giving us a look at this beach through your Mind's Eye, excellent presentation Mikio!!

It's a gorgeous vantage point that you've selected, giving an expansive view of the beautiful beach. The individuals strolling along the beach gives a sense of the scale, while we can also see the variegated greens of the water, and the rapid drop in the depth.

Good evening, Japan-time, Mikio,
Beautiful perspective over the tourquise/blue/green sea water, along the white sandy beach.
A diagonal perspective taken from your room-window, a pleasent sight seeing this on a vacation.
Marvelous place, fine photo applied.
Enjoy your weekend,

You have not uploaded for a few days, I hope you are doing well. I like this view of the beach from high above, with the three distinct regions: green grass, sand and the ocean.
