I took this photo in Lawis, Bantayan situated in the northern tip of the island. This boardwalk and viewing platform was purposely built to view both sunrise and sunset. From the deck you have an unobstructed view of the east and west.

you captured a great element of human life here. And that only by holding the camera in your hand or why is the little boy hurrying away? ;-)
The curve of the catwalk has a similar direction as the clouds in the sky and for sure the beach and water line. This adds a lot of dynamic (in addition to the running boy). And very lovely water colour.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
Benedict (7076) 2008-04-17 16:32
magkano Bai ang "suhol" na binigay mo sa batang yan para mag-model dahil kung wala siya'y hindi kumpleto ang dating ng boardwalk. maganda at napakalinis na tanawin!
parbo (11092) 2008-04-17 17:22
Excellent finish almost in few stunning colors. Repeating elements of pier, its natural depth, of course especially running boy touched artistically. Perfect clarity in sharpness and colors. Congratulations.
edytungkal (4551) 2008-04-17 19:19
This one is stunning and clever to capture and placed the portbridge on the corner left and it creates a nice effect to the picture. I have saw so many beautiful Bantayan island pictures and parts are from you and i think this island is a great place for vacation, thanks friend for showing this beautiful place.
yoyostribe (172) 2008-04-17 19:20
sir this is just plain nice, the kid running is a great addition to this magnificent photo
gunbud (34066) 2008-04-17 19:47
Wonderful varying shades of green leading to the big vivid blue sky. Great depth created by the viewing platform that appears to touch the sky. Excellent colors and great sharpness to this fine photo.
siolaw (38292) 2008-04-17 22:00
A nice and dynamic compo with the help of the running kid...! The water looks marvelous and the sky has enough clouds to make it interesting.
bakes888 (18499) 2008-04-17 23:22
Hi Renier. Purpose built for photographers! Great photo. Good depth and perspective and wonderful colours. Thanks for sharing.
jasmis (57906) 2008-04-17 23:47
Amazing dynamic scenery. Superb deep colours. Incredible mood.
kevinos (7403) 2008-04-17 23:59
You have lovely color, Renier, and a strong composition with the angles made by the horizon and the boardwalk leading the eye into the composition. the little guy running into the picture adds the composition and give a sense of movement to a very tranquil scene. ( I just got back from Oz but didn't make it to NZ this time. It's on my schedule for next trip) Regards kevin
danos (90305) 2008-04-18 0:47
very nice composition with great perspective and POV.The running child create a dynamism in the shot and in combination with the whole environment with the turquoise sea water, make the capture splendid.Excellent management of the light and the colours.Well done.
Have a nice weekend,Danos
dareco (17134) 2008-04-18 0:48
Their were a few floor boards to watch out for as well as the scenery. :) Maybe it had been repaired by the time you arrived. This brings back some good memories. TFS
snunney (89894) 2008-04-18 1:27
An excellent composition with great perspective. The little boy running down the boardwalk is a great bonus and adds much to the atmosphere. Superb colours and clarity. Excellent photo work.
stefanocer (10642) 2008-04-18 1:44
Fantastic corner odf paradise renier , wonderful composition and POV , colours are beautiful expecially crystal water , running boy is a fine add on , compliments.
Photo65Net (43120) 2008-04-18 1:59
Superb paradisiac one !
You perfectly used the bridge to enhance depth, and colors are very pleasant.
dip (23844) 2008-04-18 2:47
nice photo with great perspective and wonderful blue-green tones,
good capture of the scene and well composed,
jplebrun (21208) 2008-04-18 4:30
j'aime la couleur de l'eau dans ce ciel tout bleu, l'enfant qui cour donne de la vie à ce cliché, très belle composition.
patdeph (35748) 2008-04-18 4:40
your POV was excellent ,giving a nice perspective on this long boardwark,whose white colour make a great contrast with the water and sky!And the little boy runing on this board adds dynamism,giving life to this beautiful picture!
have a nice day.
feather (51130) 2008-04-18 8:15
They must also have had photographers in mind as the boardwalk makes a perfect lead-in line :D You have exposed the image well in the strong light. The timing is good to get the little chap running along. A slight crop from the top would take away the 50/50 split, but then we wouldn't see so much of the gorgeous sky. Well done
JCG (35129) 2008-04-18 9:28
A paradisiac prospect here, a marvellous photograph and an enticing landscape. The natural colors are superb and I like much the light which emphasizes the whole. Very pretty photograph, cheer Renier and thank you.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,
jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-04-18 9:34
perfect framing, the boy running is more than a great bonus,
control of highlights is perfect
Charo (51210) 2008-04-18 14:53
Magnífico encuadre y precioso mar de tonos turquesa. Bonita toma con ese niño corriendo por el camino. Excelente luz, colores y detalles. Bien hecho.
Buen fin de semana.
Tue (28998) 2008-04-18 16:40
Great seascape with very nice colours and an attractive light. The perspective of the pier is great. The people are a nice inclusion too, especially the running boy in the foreground. Very well done!
carper (96) 2008-04-18 23:04
a fine one Renier,
the perspective is fantastic with the running boy, the white is doing well by the dark water, good contrast, well seen a pleasure to look at, have a nice weekend.
jhm (144204) 2008-04-19 0:35
I looked to your B & W picture on TL, but I prefer this colour image.
Technical very well, great depth and excellent perspective through the long pier and the curve to the end.
Very well composition and good colour too.
Have a nice weekend,
macondo (18623) 2008-04-19 4:25
Terrific shot, captured at just the right moment and with a superb point of view. I wonder what he's running after.
The exposure is superb, stopping his action sharply and also avoiding over-exposure, which would be difficult with all that white under such a bright sun. There are some wonderful curves in this shot, in the sky and on land, and the jetty itself. And the colour in the water looks amazing. Really a great shot.
tigra (2968) 2008-04-19 19:13
Wonderful perspective could be seen here.. excellent shot!
Flavia (10352) 2008-04-19 21:53
Fantastic picture. The beauty of nature with its amazing blue-green sea, the deck and finally the running child, perfect composition that conveys the happeness of life in a paradise.
axiotea (21649) 2008-04-19 22:10
A great perspective along the bridge, with the kid running on it, giving a dynamic impact to the scene. I like to see the different color tonalities of the water and the sky. Only one thing, I might have reduced a bit the contrast, especially for the white bridge.
leo61 (0) 2008-04-20 1:04
Great POV and an amazing depth I like too the blue and turquoise tones and of course the composition with this boy running there.Good timing and a nice perspective.
trekks (14348) 2008-04-20 1:40
Ah yes, saw this B&W version and I was right about the hot and strong sun. Great contrast and colors. cheers
plimrn (21344) 2008-04-20 13:41
I much prefer the colored version with the delicate gradations of blues and greens in the sea and sky. That electric turqoise makes a fine accent and the running boy really adds a joyous focal point to the serene beauty of the scene.
dvlazar (6644) 2008-04-20 16:49
A great photo - always effective to have a child running into it, a sign of hope and freedom.
I like your composition of the idyllic location.
crckt (7218) 2008-04-20 17:37
An excellent POV, the boy running is an added beauty to it. Love the colors of the sea and sky here.
John_F_Kennedy (43413) 2008-04-20 23:57
The green water colour, the yellow-brown sand, and the blue sky is great. The composition of this view point is very beautiful.
Clementi (52514) 2008-04-21 0:30
Ciao Renier ,
a very beautiful scene with this child who runs towards the infinite sea.
beautiful place with the amazing summer feeling.
Paolo (41222) 2008-04-21 1:38
Hi Renier, beautiful view, with a long depth of field on the white pier, a wonderful sea, excellent light and warm beautiful colours.
Budapestman (82620) 2008-04-21 2:16
Fascinating atmosphere with beautiful colours. The composition is very spectacular, clarity and sharpness is excellent. Great mood. Have a nice week
ChrisJ (104179) 2008-04-21 2:38
Good use of diminishing linear perspective with the white pier, which also adds superb graphism. Excellent colour, saturation & sharpness. Tfs!
jurek1951 (42194) 2008-04-21 7:28
Beautiful scene, very good composition and point of view,fantastic sharpness and excellent depth of field, very nice colors and clarity, well done.
gildasjan (42468) 2008-04-21 7:42
Très belle composition à la tonalité si particulière.Un délice ces couleurs vertes de la mer.
saylan-cb (12738) 2008-04-21 8:19
Superb perspective!Great colours and beautiful compositions,excellent work.
Angshu (56568) 2008-04-22 0:38
An excellent post, not only with the perspective of the pier but also with the running kid. The turquoise colour of the sea is excellent as is the sky. A fine picture in harsh light. And a wonderful B&W in the WS...I like the tone of the sky there & the contrast of the pier & the lamps standout very strongly against the sky there. Good work!
AiresSantos (56155) 2008-04-22 23:39
Amazing POV and colours in this wonderful composition. Well captured the kid runing and superb tones
Have a nice day
pablominto (53746) 2008-04-23 3:08
A very summery mood in Bantayan this day!
Wonderful colours, I wonder what happens to the light to make them look like this...
Good lead-in to the viewing platform, pin sharp details in a well balanced composition!
PixelTerror (0) 2008-04-23 3:12
Perspective, action and dreamy colors, small wonder this one got deserved attention. due to extreme whites you can't play with the levels but you might selectively adjust green and blue to deliver more punch on those colors.
Have a nice day JY
salvator (19102) 2008-04-23 5:07
Wooow the colors, the thinning out deck towards the sea and curving, and the blue of the sky and emerald of the sea are just wonderful.
Best regards. Salvator.
paura (47182) 2008-04-23 7:21
Beautiful marine composition here. Lighting and colors are great. DEP is also very nice. Well done.
delic (6735) 2008-04-23 14:46
The vastness of the ocean always impresses me. Lovely colors, too, even the matching rails here. Good composition, Renier. The running boy makes it even better. Regards,
hatti52 (12786) 2008-04-24 1:44
wonderful image with excellent perspective and beautiful green,blue tones
very well done
livinitout (942) 2008-04-27 17:38
A great take here. The dark green of the sea really stands out by the white boardwalk. Nicely captured.
daddo (25795) 2008-04-29 17:16
Hi Renier. I love this sunny, happy shot. Beautiful colours and it's nice too how the side's metal green pipes match the colour of the sea. The brilliant white of the pier(and the boys white clothing) adds to the tropical brightness.The boy running brings an element of youthful, unrestrained energy and happiness. A lovely creation. Bravo Renier. Regards. Klaudio.
stego (24030) 2008-04-30 18:00
Amazing POV and colours. The jetty on that position in the image already gives a great sense of dynamism and depth, but the running boy enhances that even more, besides giving a touch of childish joy. I like also the waving flags, which somehow stand out much and the way that our sight is lead into the sea and then smoothly to the right; the jetty is just one of the causes of that, there is also the piece of sand the colour bands of the water and the clouds.
Matthew-Watt (5956) 2008-04-30 19:20
This is a great post, and fully deserving of it's popularity. The aqua/green waters are very enticing. I like the movement provided by this kid running to catch up with the rest. The white-wash paint really contrasts effectively against the water and sky. Looks to be an interesting and also relaxing part of the world to immerse yourself in. Thanks again,
Greg1949 (9011) 2008-05-01 3:45
Renier, this boy seems to be in a hurry to reach the end... Your composition is great, the complimenting lines are very comfortable and the soft color pallet is very soothing. Great capture.
Tobias__Ortmann (2638) 2008-05-02 6:53
Hi renier this shot is just great very good pov and the perfect sharpness make a very good picture
also the clear water and the moment you capturedt he warlking person very well done
sacavem (18614) 2008-05-06 2:51
Wow thats very nice how you got this bridge. i love the created depth and the sharpness ! well done.
adores (40946) 2008-05-06 16:26
It's really good, the colours, the beauty of the place, the composition.What really catch my eye here is the little boy running, he makes the composition so different. Good work!
bostankorkulugu (42214) 2008-05-07 13:10
i ve fallen in love with the colours in this one renier... the sea looks sooo inviting... and the perspective looks fab... a real good job, congrats...
jaywalker (16101) 2008-05-24 12:24
Hi Renier, Great depth creates by the boardwalk going off into the distance &, I love the way you have the little boy running, it works very well, beautiful natural colours & excellent light, brilliantly composed &, the perfect choice for your POV, kind regards Wilson.
jmcl (14535) 2008-05-24 21:53
hope you and yours are well .. I love the way the whites contrast and set off from these beautiful marine colors .. youthful exuberance fits well with this place .. well captured .. wonderful image and moment. take care, John
Atousa (7131) 2008-05-27 21:58
Both photos are very good, only create different mood..here I like pov n the layers of colour of the water..tfs
Stepan (27210) 2008-06-22 0:59
A beautiful place, a great compo (with that pathway inviting us to go into the image), a paradise light... Everything's ok here.
jmdias (58920) 2008-07-15 17:16
the boy running in the deck is a touch of life in this marvelous compo. Good pov, light and colors. The colors of the water are impressive. nice light too
Estelle (2766) 2008-07-17 13:38
What a dream place. It's really good to have the little running boy in white to create some dynamism.
