Holidaymakers enjoying a cold San Miguel beer or 2, with a spectacular tropical island sunset, at White Beach, Boracay. I liked the graphism & repetition of the coconut palms & umbrellas. Last day of winter here in Korea, & I won't be sad to see the end of it. Roll on Spring!

I like your continuing of tropical theme. Superb colours and excellent sharpness! Impressive evening scene. TFS!

The evening light with its blue/pink tones brings a pleasant atmosphere to this lively composition. What could be nicer relaxing on the beach watching the world go by with a chilled glass of beer close to hand!
hardyuno (4650) 2010-02-28 8:53
the light and the mood is really great here.
I've spent wonderful holidays at the Philippines, Bohol. Wonderful beaches and people there. Pretty nice picture, it brings warmth in the cold times.

superb vertical composition, there's a magnificent light here and the trees on FG give a great suggestion to your image. Congratulations, TFS.

Un format bien choisi, une belle luminosité de fin de journée qui donne une teinte rosée au paysage exotique.
Merci pour le partage et bonne soirée.

The presence of the people is showing part of the daily activity. The point of view is leading my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky, to the sea and to the beach. Have a nice day.
Gerrit (46820) 2010-02-28 12:12
a wonderful spot in beautiful conditions.
Great composition. It looks really pleasant.
leonorkuhn (16235) 2010-02-28 12:59
Amazing scenery with the sky in blue and rose tones. Beautiful tropical beach, magnificent place to spend holidays. Very good POV, with the nice silhouettes against the colorful sky. Great light and very good details.
Have a nice week
Prisley (1485) 2010-02-28 13:47
It reminds me of Waikiki beach in Hawaii. I love the spectrum of warm colors. It is in addition a greatly detailed image with several "daily life" scenes. Some people having a drink looking at sunset, other leaving the beach after a long sun bathing day, child playing with the sand, and so on. The vertical framing is a mandatory with these great palm/coconut trees. Overall a great photo reportage like pic'
yedirenk (11244) 2010-02-28 18:52
a great scene with warm sunlight in the superb vertical format..amazing details,like a excellent painting.TFS
axiotea (21649) 2010-02-28 22:19
Still a bit early, but I would not mind to have a san miguel beer ;) The sunsets in Boracay are remarkable and I like how you've vertically framed the scene. It seems there are lot's of people to enjoy that moment!
Graal (96418) 2010-02-28 23:57
it's beautiful. Fantastic warm light and beach. Good vertical format and composition. View like from paradise. I like it a lot.
Have a nice day.
macondo (18595) 2010-03-01 2:55
You captured the evening atmosphere perfectly here - the sensational gradient in the sky, the long, leaning palms, the shadowy area on the beach full of activity, and everywhere you look there is good detail; very little to be seen only in silhouette. Truly a wonderful sunset shot that places itself well above the average. The way the reddish sunlight is weakly glancing off the palm trunks and leaves, the umbrellas and t-shirts and so on. Great work.
Royaldevon (28341) 2010-03-01 3:17
The light is beautiful, casting a warm, pink glow over the scene. A well composed shot, with an nicely angled shorelline separating it into thirds.
The leaning palms are a very attractive feature, helping tochannel the viewer across the frame.
Let's hope spring, with increased warmth, arrives soon,
carper (96) 2010-03-01 3:51
very nice one Chris,

John_F_Kennedy (42062) 2010-03-01 5:38
Amaizing sunset, what I like more of this picture are the palm trees as silhoettes. Well done.
have a nice day,
npecanhuk (63496) 2010-03-01 5:40
Magnificent late afternoon mood in this picture, with special regards to the exposure (lights and silhouettes play harmoniously in this image), colors and composition!
Vertical format and pov are also excellent!
TFS - congratulations!
Have a great week!

gunbud (34066) 2010-03-01 13:15
Looks like a splendid place to watch the day end.
The night sky is very well seen against the contrast lush green palms.
Beats the winter scenes in the northern latitudes.
pablominto (53744) 2010-03-01 23:43
An essential part of Boracay's fame and popularity is of course the fabulous sunsets! Unfortunately you have to go to the other side of the island to see the sunrise...
This image capture the atmosphere perfectly, with the warm light catching those waiting to see it happen..!

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Ah ! qu'il est bon de contempler une telle prise de vue.
Cela réchauffe le corps et l'âme !!!
Merci de nous permettre de nous évader de notre quotidien.
mkamionka (30068) 2010-03-03 1:32
I am so jealous about all the beautiful places which you show us, so happy to see them at least in your photos.
This composition is excellent. The palm trees are beautiful enough but the light and the colors are fantastic, plus there are these people relaxing and enjoying the sunset.
Beautiful work, pleasure to look at, TFS
asajernigan (21066) 2010-03-03 2:33

Much animation on this beach, which is understood taking into account this paradisiac landscape and of this superb lighting. Very beautiful postcard of this area which makes think of the holidays, thank you Chris.
With all my friendships and with soon,
danos (85097) 2010-03-03 11:26
a really spectacular sunset with the colour tints to be spread on the surface of the sea with the people still staying on the beach.The silhouettes of the palm trees make the scene even more romantic.
lucasgalodoido (21051) 2010-03-03 13:38
beautiful sunset at this tropical beach, and the palms silhouettes and hot tones are wonderful. Great job, my friend.
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-03-03 16:41
Wonderful sunset picture with lovely colours
Great POV, well placed the palms in the picture
Fine photo work
MLINES (12516) 2010-03-03 21:47
Hi Chris, I have enjoyed your Boracay series, a lot of wonderful scenes and memories. This one has very good warmth of ambiance and the colours are most appealing. TFS. Murray.
PS I am planning to come to Seoul soon, maybe catch up if convenient.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2010-03-04 8:00
the light of your happy hour is amazing. The cropping including the trees is beautifull.
jemaflor (82934) 2010-03-04 11:35
Nice light on the sky and good result with these trees silhouettes, lovely beach ...
mesutilgim (82236) 2010-03-04 23:03
Good morning Chris,
Amazing "end of the day" light and perfect pov. A capture quite "heart warming" on those cold winter days and evokative as well. But anyhow ,next summer will come under any circumstances.
TFS and best regards
marietom (34607) 2010-03-05 7:16
J'aime ces couleurs chaudes, qui font rêver !
japiey (10163) 2010-03-05 12:57
Fascinating beauty with an amazing light. Very lively nature, well composed. All the best,dear friend.
sacavem (18610) 2010-03-05 13:41
Although the photo does not have a good quality, the theme is very relaxing. With the cold that is in Europe, it is good to see pictures like this.
bostankorkulugu (42002) 2010-03-06 23:29
oh how i would love to experience a sunset like that now... we barely see the sun through the black clouds out here unfortunately... a mesmerising scene chris...
ahmetgedikli (25448) 2010-03-07 9:38
Excellent sunset view...
Great colours, light and superb point of view... Excellent job!
ymrk (14955) 2010-03-07 9:47
tonality of sky is extraordinary!wow,most spectecular definetely...regards,
Angshu (55259) 2010-03-15 7:22
Lovely sky indeed with the gradation in colours of sunset hues. Like how the palm trees bend towards the sea before 'looking up' again...quite a few people enjoying the moment on the beach...very nice! You seem to have reduced your picture posting frequency!
Urs (14082) 2010-07-13 3:07
What a fantastic sunset, the light is very strong and bright as it has too be and the color hues are very vibrant, you really captured the atmosphere how it is. It could be a bit noisy in the darker areas, but it is difficult to see and at the other hand it does not border me at all, as you really have made the best with the available light. Very good photo job.
jaywalker (16095) 2011-01-18 10:12
Hi Chris, Wonderful night light & a beautiful sky, the silhouettes of the palms offer great detail & sweep through the photo superbly, I love the background of boats & the party of people enjoying the last of the sun, kind regards Wilson.
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4798) 2012-02-11 0:58
Hi Chris! Nice shot, a very busy and dynamic Boracay it is. Love the silhouettes and the nice warm sunset tones. This is indeed a typical scene in Boracay, wish I could go back there soon. TFS
