Let's go back together to the north coast of this marvellous country. I want to let you discover some more of the Las Terrenas village during the day. Here, you can have a look at the nice beach called "playa popi".
No resort here, only a great quantity of small hotels with bungalows and small family pensions. Many french and italian people are settled here for few decades now but what is really charming is that they mix quite well with the Dominican up to now.
You should really go there to discover these great beaches, the horse excursions one can make around, the waterfall which are lovely, and so on... And after this long day, you need to go back to the village and choose one of the numerous restaurants and have a great "pescado a la plancha".
I resized the picture, increased the contrast a little bit, modified the color curve balances then applied several unsharp masks.

The dramatic shapes in the foreground logs are a a nice compositional feature of this landscape and the rising breaker on the (near) horizon leads the eye nicely to the trees.

Même sous les tropiques un ciel dramatique embellit les compositions, les point forts sont utilisés par les troncs d'arbres rejetés par une tempête. Très bonne perspective.

A sail boat in the background would have made this an even better shot.

Wonderful composition Steven! Very well balanced with those old trees give a dramatic sensation and bring a great depth with the distant ones on the background. Lovely colors too :)

Quelle couleur cette mer ! La composition est très bien vue avec ces troncs d'arbre à l'avant plan. Jolie carte postale Steven.
