On a frigid December morning, I do not want to get up from bed and decided to search for a warm tropical scene. Shot from Boracay last March. A view from the end of White Beach I used a ND grad filter to temper the hot noon sun. Additional pp work included tweaking of exposure and contrast. The cam was set at the 'vivid' mode.
I lost the exif data while processing. If I were to guess I used the sunny f/16 rule.

Hi Danilo, this amazing photo attracted my attention in the main gallery. It's simple but those tropical colours, especially the turquoise of the sea are wonderful. Congratulations, Tolga

for sure, it helps wake up during winter mornings. Flashy and vivid colors, the sail boat seems unreal.
Good post processing

Another fan of vivid mode. I just love these saturated colours. The whole scene looks so paradisiac. Good sharpness.

Welcome back! What a great shot of Philippines! I like this colourful boat in contrast with the blue sky and the green water - it's really well placed. I also like the way you included that part of the rock with the vegetation and the houses on the right side. How is the situation over there? I've heard there have been problems. That's one of the destinations on my list.

Nice to see one of your rare entries again!
And of course the colours are outstanding, and I'm not only talking of the boat...
Sailing boats seem to be typical for Boracay, can't remember I ever saw banca with sails in Cebu..!

What to say for this masterpiece of God
