A tropical beach scene at Cadlao Island, in the gorgeous Bacuit Archipelago, not far by 'bangka' boat from El Nido Town. El Nido is at the top of Palawan Island. Taken with an 18 mm lens, so there is some distortion, & it was not possible to include more fg, without losing the top of the coconut palm completely.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Le paradis n'est pas sur la terre, mais il y a des morceaux. Il y a sur la terre un paradis brisé ?
Magnifique image qui fait rêver. Il est bien difficile de quitter son regard de cette composition.
Un grand merci de nous faire rêver tout éveillé.

It is a paradise beach indeed. Wonderful colour of the sea, I hope the water is pleasant warm, good for swimming, nice palms, rocks, and noone there. Exellent photo, everyone would like to spend some time there, lying on the white sand. I would, anyway. I hope to spend a day or two in such haven in december.

A title well selected for this very nice place and this very nice..... shot. Good balance in the contrast between the green of the vegetation and the tender blue of the sea and the sky.
Have a nice Sunday,

Hello Chris - A heavenly location and admirable capture. The blues through to greens are a match made in heaven and well captured with subtle changes in hue and tone. Makes me want to pack my bags! Best regards Rosemary

A well composed shot of this earthly paradise. The line of the palm trees coming in from the right draws the eyes into the scene. The verdant tones of the vegetation contrast well with that lovely sky. Superb colours and sharpness.

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the palm trees, of the beach and of the cliff. The late morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

delpeoples (55090) 2011-10-16 20:03
Oooh this is simply beautiful. What a paradise! The colours in the water, the strong colours of the trees and sky and the tight framing make a wonderful composition. This is fit for a travel magazine, it must be because you've sold me on the Phillipines!

les verts sont fantastiques sur cette photo, c'est ce qui a attiré mon regard en premier, une diagonale qui fait toujours son effet.
Le ciel est magnifique.
My best regards.
batalay (36978) 2011-10-17 1:19
A perfect title for a perfect photo. Whatever distortion that exists here fades in comparison to the assets — exotic subject, beautifully composed, flawlessly exposed. I love the species of palms with towering slender trunks. I can imagine how strong this hardwood is that comes from these trees, although it would be a crime to harvest them.
pauloog (11747) 2011-10-17 1:32
Just lovely isn't it ? For visitors certainly, hopefully also for the inhabitants...

The beach looks just great, with dominating steep rocky cliffs, a coconut grove in order to enjoy some shade, and turquoise, warm looking waters for a great swim, and a beautiful white sand beach...what more can one demand???
danos (90317) 2011-10-18 23:58

a dream beach to dream, just great, very well photographed, congratulations!
ikeharel (62925) 2014-09-18 7:40
Beautiful composition with mild HDR technique.
The beach scenery is no less than stunning sight, and the amazing rock prominently slop onto the sea.
Super-clarity and fine photojob.
