A dismal day at Chaweng Beach on Ko Samui, but it was still better than being stuck in the snow & ice in Korea! I liked the graphic diagonal of the coconut palm. This beach is one of the best on the island, located in the Gulf of Thailand.

Wonderful shot ! Idyilic place beautidul soft colours and very inviting atmosphere. O like a lot the way yu used the palm tree as a "divider! here. Makes a very dynamic comp and at the same time serves and a great natural frame.
take care, Stef :))

Not bad for a 'dismal' day ... the warm waters look inviting for me. Nice placement of the coconut tree ...it somehow gives the scene some framing. Well composed and good clarity. Well done ... tfs.

simple but very nice
I love beach view

A classic bending palm tree on the edge of the beach with the sea slowly coming in. Pleasing muted colours and good clarity.

isn't it the same palm tree as in "Chaweng Sunset III" from you? I liked the palm on the other one, why not here, as it is nearly the same POV but the light is a bit different to the former one. Nice view again.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Beau cadrage avec ce palmier attirer par la mer, sa doit être joli aussi le soir avec sa petite lampe acrocher dessus...beaucoup de douceur des couleurs, belle prise de l'eau qui vient carresser le sable

Do I remember this particular palm tree from the times I was on that paradisical place or is it my my heart trying to "connect" with the place and the photo :-)
Maybe it lacks the sunshine to be the typical tropical beach postcard, but that can also contribute to its special charm. Again, I am too biased here, as I got a few days like this one when I was there (no sun, rain, etc.).
Really wonderful. TFS.

xavshot (69835) 2007-04-03 14:36
jolie vue paradisiaque et bel équilibre dans la compo. C'est simple mais je trouve que ça fonctionne bien.

Wonderful setting with the arching coconut palm, as if eager to get into the sea! A good diagonal of the beach with the light turquoise of the sea lapping against the sand with the mountains in the far BG.

Inutile de faire de longues phrases pour apprécier cette prise de vue.
J'ai l'impression de m'évader et de jouir d'un spectacle particulièrement idyllique.
Très bon cadrage.
jemaflor (84629) 2007-04-04 6:48
A lovely place of course, maybe pity you don't have a better light and perhaps you have too much cropped the top of this coconut palm.
pablominto (53744) 2007-04-04 6:51
A simple composition, but containing all elements needed to tell the story!
I like the contrast between the palm in strong colours against the pale sea and sky...
syd1946 (18663) 2007-04-04 13:00

So, I see you've been back to your favourite huants this winter. maybe a dismal day, but I like the simplicity of this one, asdn the strong diagonal from the palm.
