My previous post is more appreciates for me by that topic, some difficult conditions.
And as Krzysztof said: "In this case the quality is definitely not the most important thing,just the cultural aspect of the shot".
Well, this photo is very simple, like a pop music, like a sweet candy. There is good light, more time for experience and good conditions on the ocean's beach.
"Sri Lanka is The Wonder Of Asia" is a phrase from a touristic booklet.
This is one of the first my photos in 2014.

A simple composition but very great effect. I love the graphics of the waves on the golden sands and the presence of coconut. Well done!
Have a nice sunday my friend and best wishes for 2014!

What a lovely and beautiful picture with special regards to the simple, but attractive and meaningful composition, exposure and colors!
Yesterday, with the heat that we're facing here, I enjoyed a deliciously fresh coconut water! Have you tried it?
TFS - congrats,

For sure it looks as a wonder...Excellent capture, very fine textures and a good and appropiate composition, I guess you had a great time on Sri Lanka...
Have a nice day...

I like this shot a lot due to its simple but also very clear and strong composition. Excellent execution taken with superb sharpness, DOF and exposure. The visual result is lovely! TFS!

sometimes simple things tell the most. it is like the photo of hope and future. i can think about the tree which will grow in the sand to bear new fruits. well seen.
timecapturer (49286) 2014-01-12 5:07
I love this! So simple and yet intriguingly beautiful and compelling. It conjures up the atmosphere of lazy days soaking up the sun, drinking coconut and rum punch, and dipping a toe in the warm sea. Execution and creativity here are top class. Wonderful!
Have a good week - B.

Privet Sergheï, a coconut on the sands of Sri Lanka, I've seen a documentary on Tv about the top 20 of the most beautiful beaches of the world and the number one was a beach of Ceylon with a long and complicated name, maybe you went to that place! It's the perfect place for the new year, I was also on a paradisiac beach during the new year 2014 sunrise, an unforgettable memory! Congrats, a simple and brillant capture. Khorochevo dnia

J'aime beaucoup cette image. La plage est superbe. J'aime beaucoup la diagonale que forme l'eau moussante dans l'image ainsi que l'emplacement dans l'image de cette cocotte.
holmertz (41753) 2014-01-12 7:44
A simple but excellent composition which could be seen as a symbol of a lazy holiday on a tropical beach. Water, sand and a coconut, a strong diagonal; you have made this beach a lot more attractive than by filling it with bathers and colourful umbrellas.

una proposta piacevole per la contrapposizione ben studiata tra acqua e sabbia, due degli elementi che caratterizzano l'isola anche se non sono i più famosi.
Il frutto si inserisce al punto giusto per completare molto bene la composizione alla quale va anche riconosciuto il pregio di ottimi colori e nitidezza impeccabile.
Ciao e buona domenica

simple composition and very nice finally effect. Good idea and shot. Photo I like.
Have a nice evening.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-01-12 8:36
this photo really took my attention for very long time and it was because of the nut on the sand. I tried to learn what exactly kind of nut it was and after many searches decided it could be coconut. Was I right or totally wrong?
Super colors and light and very nice elegant composition.
Have a nice evening

Hello Serghei ,
A wonderful minimalist composition . Great details , colors and sharpness . Excellet framing in this square format .
photoray (12507) 2014-01-12 12:14
Simple but appealing with your composition in fine resolution revealing the sand textures and foamy wave action, with the coconut dominating.
erhan1958 (15224) 2014-01-12 13:28
very clear and sharpnes shot.
thus is the good wallpaper
siamesa (27743) 2014-01-12 13:43
Boa noite Serghei
I agree with Krzysztof.Spectacular these foams. Marvelous. I loved it.
Periko (2717) 2014-01-12 15:26
Simple beauty and perfect technique.
worldcitizen (7071) 2014-01-12 18:31
You've composed a lovely representation of this tropical place: the foam of the sea, a coconut on the sand. I like the diagonal line the wave makes as it comes up onto the beach. Nice framing, too.
eldancer1 (28513) 2014-01-13 7:36
Beautiful beach scene! I've seen this kind of scene with coconut on the beach while growing up in the Philippines. I like the effect of the waves, it looks this was taken at slow speed with waves somewhat blurry. Good lighting and sharp details. WEll done, tfs.
adramad (38573) 2014-01-13 7:44
A minimalist composition, with few elements but very beautiful with the sea line cutting the image, with the diagonal, good time with the foam of the breaking wave, this fruit dropped on the sand, is a sensational twist, amazing textures showing the sand.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I Like
Enjoy a nice day.
All the best.
Noel_Byrne (24852) 2014-01-13 8:49
The sand in this beach looks incredible, I want to lie in that sand and feel its texture. This is a simple, but very effective composition showing the beauty of the beach.
And I like at the object and wonder, is it a nut, a fruit? Certainly not something I would find in my garden :)
All the best
annjackman (19937) 2014-01-13 23:46
This is perfectly simple and very well taken. Great use of the diagonal surf. The sharpness has brought out such lovely detail in the sand and coconut.
Fisrt class shot - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann
emka (79926) 2014-01-13 23:57
Priviet Serghei, You had wonderful beginning of the year in Sri Lanka. very attractive composition with the foam and lying coco nut. Simple but perfect.
I have already tickets for three trips, haha.
All the best mr. I.F.
krzychu30 (15498) 2014-01-14 0:10
this one has certain mood and something nostalgic in itself-at least I can feel it while admiring it.
I´m really impressed how excellently you composed and framed the scene to achieve this amazing end result.
Beautiful,evocative and for sure very artistic composition!
Wish You all the best
ourania (32127) 2014-01-14 11:41
an elegant and effective minimal composition that tells us about the lovely country you visited. It speaks about the sea and the beach and offers us a wonderful feeling of the warm and lucid light. You have divided the frame superbly, the movement of the sea and the natural textures and colours are captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
jcpix (13688) 2014-01-14 15:41
Hey, what happened to your picture from today of the two ladies at sunset?? Oh well, this is just as fine to admire...but frankly, women are better looking than a coconut. :)) I love the care free atmosphere this presents, simplicity at its finest, and imagery that just exudes a sensation of easy going and fun in the sun. Beautiful warm colors set against the white sea foam, this looks quite inviting. Hope you're feeling better. Be good and stay warm. Take care my friend.
All my best regards,
Waylim (25360) 2014-01-15 10:40
Beautiful image, so simple and yet so effective and compelling image. Love it. Excellent POV and artistic composition. Simple white frame, clean and professional.
jemaflor (85510) 2014-01-15 23:33
a simple composition well seen and taken, pleasant view with warm tones, good result with these two parts and the lovely light, tfs.
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-01-18 4:01
This is fantastic well spotted and managed, love the simplicity of this scene, the sea foam lapping on the sand and the beautiful nut or fruit?
mcmtanyel (14123) 2014-01-18 21:54
There is beauty in the simplicity of this photo. I love the tones of the sand and the coconut. The white foam of the surf mingles well with the sand. This is an excellent pick-me-up photo.
tatadalou (6341) 2014-01-30 13:47
A square framing for a simple composition. I like the slight diagonal formed by the scum. Stunning sharpness.

I have run out the green smile today. But I have to give this picture a high praise. It's so wonderful.
The opening ceremony of Winter Olympics was stunningly grand. The city of Sochi is so gorgeous. When I saw the ski event on the TV, the high mountains was breathtaking.
