dreamily the scenery with the shadows of the palm trees to outline perfect against the white sand as on the sea too.The wide frame enhance the beauty of the scene even more.

Idyllic Maldives panorama, the three palm tree shadows relaxing on the white sand and light turquoise blue waters, ascending into darker blues. Simple yet very appealing. Wish I was there.

foto molto semplice ed essenziale ma di grande impatto per la presenza delle ombre delle palme che evocano la presenza di quanto in essa rimane nascosto.
Solo due colori nelle loro varie gradazioni: bianco e blu ed un taglio in 16.10 che aggiunge ultreriore efficacio.
Una bella idea, sviluppata molto bene.
Ciao e buona serata

Marina, dobryi vetcher,
Remarkable turquoise hues, the shadow of three coconuts is visible on the sands of the paradisiac beach located in Maldives archipelago, perfect resolution, bolcho´e spassibo, do svidania

che spiaggia, manco solo io...
Bella composizione, l'ombra delle palme ci stanno benissimo, senza parlare dello splendido mare.

simple,but to be honest I don┤t think we do need anything more.Simple saying-Paradise on Earth and I┤d love to spend there at least one day.
Btw.the idea with these shades of palm trees was excellent as it creates so nice,but also kind of nostalgic feeling of the scene.
Have a nice evening

Simplistic, calming, colourful and intriguing, a few words which come to me while viewing this fantastic scene love the Palm tree shadows, Love it especially the blue tones,

A highly original way of capturing palm trees on a beach! By only giving us their shadows to look at, you have maximized the amount of ocean that you can fit into the frame - a great choice for the Maldives where the colour of the ocean is second to none!

Wonderful keen eye you have! The three long shadows almost merge diagonally at a point, making a sound base to the image and continue to lead the eye and beyond. It's a heavenly looking spot I dream of - pure white sandy beach, unspoilt, the astounding clarity and vision of glistening crystal clear warm blue water !! A jaw-dropping indeed - really is that vivid! which conveys that feeling of space and depth immensely. Simply gorgeous and pleasure to view. Congrats :))

well this is such a beautiful pic,with amazing creativity.nicely thought .like the colors and the way it divides the frame.
tatadalou (6069) 2014-01-23 21:51
Looks like paradise ! The three shadows cleverly suggests some elements of landscape back you. Nuances of blue are just magical.

Hello Marina - This simple shot conveys so much with so little! It reminds me, in a way, of the hurried brush strokes of an impressionist sketch where the end results always seem to convey a mood and idea. I really like the results here. Warm regards Rosemary

Wow!..Marina, that's such a simple composition to produce a superb photo. No wonder they say small is beautiful. Love your innovation and thought process behind this photo. I can find all the shades of blue in the sea. Maldives is beautiful, but it looks all the more attractive through your lens. My compliments on an excellent capture. Thanks for sharing.

A welcome sunny picture while we are in the heart of winter.
I like the subtle palette of pastels blue contrasting (but in perfect harmony) with the white sand.That seems to be an invitation for diving in that blue sea.
The drawing of the shadow's palm is very interesting too.
Perhaps a very simple picture ,but a very good work and point of view ,I think.
timecapturer (47462) 2014-01-24 5:14
love this! It sums up the idyllic vision we all have of the Maldives and is a beautifully simple and yet stunning piece of imagery. The tourist board would love this one and the minimalist magic here is just superb. I applaud your observational skills here. Sublime!
Enjoy the weekend - B.

Superb colors of the beach. I love this minimalist work of art, well taken.
Enjoy a great weekend.
yquem46 (38528) 2014-01-24 9:05
Excellent idea only to suggest rather than show
High visual impact
Nice colors, very luminous
But a bit overexposed in the sand and the shadows of the palm trees could therefore be a bit darker
A very pleasant and appealing image
Good for this WE! Best regards
PaulVDV (21655) 2014-01-24 16:48
Wonderful in composition and colours.
I like the simplicity and the calming feeling of the picture.
Best regards, Paul
willperrett (6632) 2014-01-26 9:57
Clever minimalism here, and an interesting crop from the full frame. I wonder if a small boat in the middle distance, or a solitary figure on the beach would add a counterbalancing note to the emptiness, or simply spoil your pristine effect...
kiks (11749) 2014-01-27 7:41
Well seen, Marina. I like the simplicity of the composition and the soft colors.
ikeharel (55282) 2014-02-01 1:46
Good morning Marina,
a simple composition, yet a marvelous taken shot: shadows of the three palm, like a painting on the white sand. The multi-blue colors of the sea is outstanding sight, from a deep navy-blue on far to the turquoise splendid tone in close range.
well spotted and nicely posted.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi dear Marina,
Please forgive the long delay in responding to your last critic... busy bee!!!
I love this image - the simplicity of the photo is so beautiful well spotted & I love the tranquil colours a cocktail of blues.
Well done on the overall content & clarity.
mirosu (13190) 2014-02-12 2:22
Simple but excellent. Nice to see the palm tree shades and also the beautiful blue clean water in background.
Very well done.
macjake (54930) 2014-03-02 13:27
this may well be a sime type of scene, but often the simple things in life are the best and most rewarding.
just look at the beauty here....its breathtaking!
I bet everyone who views it wants to be IN the photo laying on the beach.
fine layers of blue, like a blue sandwhich :)
Warm and inviting post
