nice shot with the yellow plastic car with the slide on it to ba park on the sandy beach.The different colours contrast perfect between them and make the image more effective.

Ola Paulo, how are you? Nice beach, a lot of free space, not occupied by turists, attractive yellow object. Nice composition, good colours and sharpness. What about the temperature of the water? It would be ni ce to relax there.

A simple nice beach scape, a well composed shot in lovely colors, but the stunning colored object gives a strong impact to the shot and renders a striking contrast.
Good sense of photography strong in its effect. Well done, Congrats

Hi Paulo. A beautiful beach scenery. People walk along the bay. A yellow car with a slide for the kids. The area I like. You have skillfully captured this beautiful scene with your D40. Very nice. Rgds, Wolfgang.

boa captura essa, com cores bem vivas nessa praia, e um curioso escorregador em forma de VW. Belo trabalho, amigo.
Parabéns e Abraço,

you are presenting an image much in theme with the season!
We all are looking for beaches like that!
At first I wondered what that like of white sand was, but than looking in the map I saw that that is the mouth of the river. So this must protect the beach from big waves I presume...
The composition is quite pleasant, based on the strong chromatic contrast between the deep blue sea and sky with the yellow and red "car". That makes a strong eye catcher and act as a focal point for the composition. I imagine you are spending there your holidays... (:-)
Greetings from very hot Sardinia,

A car with a slide, now that is a new one..!
Colourful plaything for the kids, still with some people around enjoying late summer days...
The fine light renders rich vivid colours in this well framed scene!

Muy bonita y tranquila playa, ideal para pasear por la arena junto al mar, bonito toque de color el que da a la imagen ese coche acuatico, un dia magnifico, que te da una bonita luminosidad y gran colorido.
Pasa una buena semana.

A beach of great beauty indeed ! The white sandbank in the background is very effective and very sharply captured. The people on it look like penguins on an ice-floe :-)
Big contrast between the flashy colours of the car-slide and those of the natural environment.
Kids must have a great time on it, but from a photographic point of view, I find it a little out of place ! In the local authorities'place, I would have chosen something more in phase with the natural panorama. Just a personal opinion.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

O veículo-escorregador amarelo ficou bem contrastado com as cores escuras da praia, em uma composição bem elaborasa, e com uma boa iluminação, meus parabéns pelo trabalho!

Great positioning to take this shot, the composition is excellent. Great contrast of colour including the yellow car. Good depth and sharpness too and I like how the rope weaves diagonally through the foreground of the image too, great addition. Thanks for sharing.
