The boat cruise must have been a worthwhile experience. An attractive shot, where the sailing boat adds life to the otherwise almost monotonic rows of newly built houses. Good composition. Are they all tourist residences or for local inhabitants? A power-shovel seems to make preparations for more houses on the background. Good control of exposure in strong light. Natural colours although the sky looks a bit dim. Maybe it's an effect of the polariser? TFS!

Hi Kari, looks like a scene straight from Greece, but we're in the Caribbean! I like the predominance of white and how it contrasts so beautifully with the differing blue tones. Great job, TFS and I wish you a good Thursday, Lisa

Ahhhhhhh....again the clouds. They are perfect for the image I think.

This is my cup of tea Kari (as the Englishmen use to say),
I usually spend my summer holidays sailing with my boat... but nobody take pictures of her!
You framed her very well, setting her at the right side to show more space in the direction where she's sailing, and not too near and not too far. Furthermore the view of the coast make the scene more dynamic and the lovely clouds in the sky balance the view below.
If you were on another sailing boat you had to be tacking - i.e. with the wind in front of you - as far as I can see from this photo. Caribbean are famous as a favolurite sailing destination, I guess you had a lot of fun.
