This shot is from the beach where the ferry to Koh Samui used to go from. There was a controlled forrest fire as you can see.
I enhanced the picture with neat image, which is why it got this soft look.

The photo looks like captured during a movie that you have seen on tv
Wishing a great day;)

Strange atmosphera: it must be a dramatic event, but everything is quiet...it looks really like a movie scene!
Thank you for sharing!

Great capture in soft colors. Excellent frame and POV. The definition is not the best but i like this work.
Have a great weekend, Aires

Hello Harry, this is an interesting shot where the smoke mixes with the clouds. I like the curve of the bay and the detail of the boats. The NeatImage enhancement, while a touch strong does add a pleasing effect.

Hi Harry, strange picture, due to this controlled forest fire, on the beach, witht the use of neatimage, strange one but good one ;) After using neatimage you could have use a little bit sharpening
Anyway i like this picture :)

The PP creates an original ambience... The compos looks sad to me... because of its colors, the purpose... Must have been a strange moment.

Hi Harry - the unusual thick smoke sets this apart from being just another beautiful beach photo, the distribution of the smoke is quite pleasant, I think they burn sugarcane or something, the noise filtered has softened the quality somewhat.

A good view over the beach with the trees and hills in the background. The boats are a nice addition too. The smoke creates a dramatic atmosphere here. Well captured!

Different panorama. I like the originality. I would sharpen it a bit after the Neat Image.
