There are three that it is impressive to come to the island in the south. One is a blue warm sea. The second is the strong sunlight. And third is a big white cloud. The combination of clouds and blue sky is exquisite. This picture, I took the coast of Onna village located in the Midwest of Okinawa in summer five years ago. Close to the sandy beach, large mat of yellow was floating. It would have been used as a resting area a temporary jump into the sea. The summer sea gives healing and empowering the mind just to look without swim.

Everything is perfect in this photo, the placement of yellow platform, excellent cloudy sky above, beautiful color contrast, superb reflections and excellent arrangement in vertical format. Well done. V+F

I love this minimal composition and the way it evokes a tranquil and intimate mood even though it has to do with vast spaces. I also love the contrasting colours, the texture of the sea and the subtle reflection of the light on it. Cloud and platform seem to be floating in the frame in the same gentle manner. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

I noticed this photo immediately among the 18 thumbnails and thought it was an original and attractive composition. It made me pleased to notice it was yours. You certainly have a talent for finding beauty in the most simple things. I love how this yellow construction has one blue detail that matches the colour of the water and the sky. This yellow thing also balances the white cloud very well. You have made a composition of perfect harmony and beauty.

Anchored rafts, I remember them! At the beaches we visited, they would be just beyond the first set of buoys, a nice place for swimmers to rest before going on to the next level of buoys.

The brilliant weather brings lots of joy to this summer capture of a simple seascape with right elements blended together and the striking bright yellow float is indeed hard to ignore. This leads continually into the whole scene with the cotton clouds rendering a fine touch and lots of life. Well done.
