You sure won't find either neon streets or groomed parks on the small and narrow strips of sand that the majority of the Maldive islands are, so I thought this long and beautiful palm alley might well make for a local avenue:)
Lovely path to walk along under that gorgeous sky.

This path with its tall palm trees looks very nice and the exuberant vegetation at the foot of the trees makes it even more paradisiacal.
Is this picture taken near the beach (I guess the beach is never far away at the Maledives) and is it white sand we see between the two long rows of greenery?
Best regards, Paul

che splendore! Forse nelle Maldive questa sarà una strada come tante, o forse considerata anche brutta ma ai nostri occhi questa è una vera meraviglia della naturasia per come è ben inserita nel paesaggio sia per i colori meravigliosi che la circondano.
Sei stata bravissima nel riprenderla da un punto di vista molto basso per cui le palme si sono trasformate in alberi ancora più imponenti allineati in direzione dell'infinito, creando una composizione piacevolissima.
Dei colori inuti parlare, tanto la loro bellezza si giudica da sè.
Uno scatto molto ben fatto e particolarmente suggestivo. Bravissima.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

That certainly is a gorgeous sky. Is it the result of a polarizing filter, a bit of PP tweaking, or is it really that colour? The rest of the shot isn't bad either!

gran bello scatto, le nostre strade hanno ben poco a che vedere con questa.
Una foto ben composta, con una bella luce e colori magnifici.Brava

Wonderful place and interesting perspective between the palm trees
Very good lights ambiance

Who needs neon streets or groomed parks on this sandy paradise? People go there to enjoy blue sky and palm trees, just like this wonderful picture you presented.
krzychu30 (15332) 2013-06-13 4:47
another amazing shot from Paradise:)
I like your idea for this shot-you noticed excellently the uniqueness of these rows of palm trees.They look really magnificent agains so lovely and partial cloudy sky,but also taken from this perspective.Quality and colors are also superb!
Have a nice day

Beautiful Palms, beautiful sky.
Excellent colors and sharpness.
Very impressive picture!
adores (34330) 2013-06-16 16:58
A very different photo from the Maldives! It's in fact a very beautiful alley, with no one around:)! Colours are very good and you had a beautiful sky!
abmdsudi (39470) 2013-06-17 23:46
Good light in the wonderous sky makes this one works, your vision of this fine palm grove is always interesting and thoughtful. The converging lines of all those trees and the path making a simple but effective image. Much as I admire your work, the layout really work compositionally, attention is equally well distributed within the frame as they rightly deserve. The plantation is a place for serene outing for sure and how wonderful it must be to wander through those beautiful tropical trees.Excellent control of exposure, rich colors and stunning contrast. A very well taken shot, I enjoy the view very much :))

Wish you the best
macjake (51972) 2013-06-24 9:54
I've never been to the Maldives, and to be honest I don't really know how it looks. If this is any indication, I'd say book my a flight! haha
the low POV pointing upwards a bit really works well to create that attractive viewpoint.
love the palms high up in the clouds.
bona (12229) 2013-06-25 10:51
a wonderful sand path between the palms. I like the green and blue here! A moment in paradise looking your photo.
siudzi (32323) 2013-06-30 2:14
Wow! What a fantastic shot of this stunning place! Absolutely amazing composition created with a superb sense of perspective. The cloudy sky looks wonderful here and it's a great plus of the scene. Bravo! Excellent shot.
Have a lovely day!
ourania (26236) 2013-06-30 8:09
your picture and its title are superb. The composition is simple and allows the extraordinary natural elements and colours describe a very attractive scenery. The converging perspectives of the palm trees and bushes are magnetic and depth and clarity work effectively too in making this a very inviting image. The dramatic and dynamic sky is a marvellous backdrop that makes the composition look so rewarding. Light management and colour definition are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
mvdisco (17638) 2013-07-16 18:00
