Nylon Pool - in the left corner you could a little part of the boat - also a little bit shadow in the water.
Around the sea of Tobago you could find a lot of underwater paradises. One of the beautiful places is the Buccoo Riff where you could dive, snorkel or just going by glas-bottom boat. The reef over 10.000 years old and protected area since 1973. In the middle of the reef you could find a place called "Nylon Pool". The place is about 1m deep and absolutely calm. The ligth of the water is really emerald-green.

I love the silky turquoise color of the water. I would crop the overhanging part of the boat top left, increase saturation & boost contrast in the water. Good work overall & tfs!

mit dem Hauch von Boot hast Du bei dieser Aufnahme eine tolle Zusatztiefe erzeugt. Das ist Dir sehr gut gelungen!

This is a paradise, really. I like the calm picture and wonderful place. The colour to water is perfect. Magnific work to saturation and contrast.

I agree with Chris that the over-hanging part of the boat is a distraction. However, if you cropped it, you would take away part of the cloud that I feel is an integral part of the image. On the whole the crystal clear water is beautiful and the little spit of sand enhances the scene. It's all topped off with that beautiful cloud.

Hi Achim = the view is knockout, perhaps needs a touch of darkening and contrast, and I wish the roof on top was not visible, but quite successful in any case.

your photo shows a beautiful marine landscape to us, catching with much quality of image this crystalline water in a beautiful color turquoise, where it desires to make a plunge.
The great resistance that there is between the different tones from blue of the sea and the sky, and the small strip of the coast is very pleasant, it gives much force to the image.

Nice sharp view. It inspired me to do a little Workshop, hope you don't mind :-)

Nice turquoise color of the sea, it's so clear that we are able to see the bottom, very good POV and great perspective with nice depth effect. Inna (a_i_ren) already cloned the pieces of wood in the upper left corner of your picture, it was a little bit distracting.
Thank you for sharing.

The colours are really lovely and the sense of depth is good as well.
Nice "detail" on the top of the left-hand side.

Lovely view! Oh, I would like to go there!!! Especially, since sommer is coming here!
Well seen. The only thing, I would crop the photo a little bit, to remove the thing on the top left and make it more like a panoramic view.
Anyway, lovely place.
