Lovely shot! The colours of the sea and the soft white sand make this look perfect, you've found a good foreground subject too - a nice wooden sunlounger with a pretty lady on it - even better! My only thought is that I'd think about rotating it about 0.36° CCW to straighten the horizon a touch. Excellent work :-D

Paradise well retracted here! The blue sea and the soft white sand look fabulous! I also like the way you caught the hair of the lady...she seems to be having some fun! Who wouldn´t??

It's such a rough life being a photogragher in hostile environments like this,eh Rande? :-)Wonderful composition that transports us "there"...one can almost feel the salty breeze blowing in her hair.Just an ever-so-slight correction required in horizon leveling.

Like taken out of a travel brochure. The angel you have chosen with the wide sea as background and the hair in the wind as main element is very creative. Just enough hair, sunglasses and skin to tell the story.

Great colors! Great picture of the sea and sky! Besides the sun, the picture is not overexpose!

Très belle image. Belle composition et très belle couleur. Celle hic! l'horizon me semble pencher un peu vers la droite... mais j'aime bien.

Everything about this picture is great - the clarity, the tan!, the colour contrast, the composition but most of all just to be there again - ah the memories!

Very nice pictures indeed. My wife and I are going to the Maldives soon...I hope I will be able to take pictures as good as this :-)

Very beautiful picture. The texture of the wood and the hairs is outstanding. The only thing going wrong in this shot is the horizon a slightly tilted...

I feel the pleasant breeze of the Maldives, surroundings white beach, blue lagoon and clear blue sky. I'm adding this into my "Tropical Islands" theme. I really like your comfortable photo!

Wonderful composition. This could be the next cover of Conde' Nast. Spectacular horizons of color. Well done.

Good composition here. Colours are great and the focus excellent. This leaves something to the viewers imagination which is always a good thing. Pleasant place to be.

Very sensual shot. It leaves the desire to see her from the other side...

Lovely shot. It is interesting how much an original beachchair (the value of luxury hotels?) can give to an image! As her right shoulder is not visible and she is offcenter on the chair it makes me wonder if she is missing her companion. :-)
Only little minus is the slightly tilted horizon.

What a beautiful day!, Rande
This scene show fantastic element of colors. Blonde hair and tanned skin under the sunny day did a good contrast with white sand and blue sea and sky. It's a fantastic scene in good composition.

What a beautiful shot, everything simply fits, the colours, the setting, the point of view, it feels like even every footprint in the sand is right there where it belongs in order to make the picture look as beautiful as it is - thanks for uploading!

Amazing photo. Excellent idea and so well done.
Good colors, composition and focus.
The hair adds some extra...

Interesting sensual photo, with an interesting point of view and beautiful bright colors. The symetry adds something special to the picture.

i must say "i long to be here" desperately!
maybe, i'll just go on dreaming of this paradise found......dream on, dream on!
i always have problems at 'straightening' horizons on pixs, so this little issue is no disturbance to me!

Incredibly interesting perspective. The imagination picks up where your picture leaves off. True tranquility and beauty.
