An early morning scene from Alona Beach, a fishing village often frequented by tourists in the Visayas region. Most of the boats shown have just returned from an evening of fishing. The fishermen are now cleaning their boats hoping to transport tourists for inter-island hopping.
PP work included tone mapping with Photomatix followed by auto contrast and re-sizing with Photoshop.
Wishing everyone a great weekend.

Hi Danilo, I could swear the fishermen were returning at the end of the sunset... Sun was very good framed and positioned at the correct place. Congratulations!

A fine play of dark and half dark silhouettes against a clear background. Good contrast between the golden sun and the greyish other colours. And plenty of small details to discover.

Very nice shot for a very nice place. The sun is very well locatd in the composition. The black silhoutes of the palmtree in the FG give a greta depht to the image. Superb graphic effect too with the silhouet of the boats in the sea.

Its been a while since I've seen you post here so I'm glad you're back.
I so miss Panglao and I still recall this very busy beach.
