I liked the colour contrasts of the hot orange umbrella against the cooler cyan of the bg Andaman Sea. This area of Patong Beach in Phuket was badly affected by the tsunami but has made an almost complete recovery. I preferred the less crowded northern beach of Kamala, just a few km to the north of here.

Good composition of these beach umbrellas. I like the juxtaposition between the umbrellas in terms of position and colours; also a nice counter-balance from the palm tree. Good light and shadow play as well. Very good tones and sharpness.

Beautiful beach shot. The palm tree and the orange umbrella balance each other well in the image.

It's great to see that this area is doing so well - from the picture you would never guess that there was such devestation. The colour of the water is very inviting, and that along with the palm trees and beach umbrellas makes this seem like paradise. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Chris. Dang that's a lot of umbrellas off in the distance. You could use a wider angle lens because I find myself wanting to see more on the left and right. But you were correct with the portrait orientation. Very nice one Chris.

This is a view with a sky and a luminous aspect that stands out from your latest posts, superb blue sky, exposure well kept under control and an appealing colorful beach scene, I like it.
Have a nice day,

nice colourful change with the umbrellas and I like the shadow on the sand. The palm asks for vertical.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Blue sky and a perfect day on the beach, what more can one wish for..!
Beautiful colour of the water contrasts well the deeper green of the palm leaves...
Well composed image, good colours and fine textures in the sand!

Good vertical format. Nice work under the harsh sunlight. Very sharp with good detail. Makes me wish I was back in Thailand witha Singha in hang. Well done.

Yes the orange umbrella stands out amidst the others. Good use of the vertical format. The depth & colour contrasts are excellent. Harsh light but handled well
