Skip-surfing has become a popular pasttime in Boracay Islands. Here's one of the surfing teenagers trying to outclass each other.
Taken shortly after sunset... I realized that while sunsets are beautiful, the colors of the horizon and the sea become even more beautiful shortly after sunset. For this shot, I removed my PLL filter, but retained my camera's UVV filter for clarity.

I remember seeing this when I was on Boracay - its a sight to behold! I love action shots - and youve captured exactly that right here, with aesthetically nice colors. Well framed too - great shot.

A very good silhouette image, with great pink and purple tones. I also like the action impact which you've captured perfectly. Nice added interest with the yacht in the background.

Hi JCC. Although it seems a bit oversaturated, I like the intensity of the resulting colors and the contrast of your shot. Regards, Yvonne

Nice sunset work. Amazing colors. Great action in the silhouettes. Way to freeze the water. Well done.
