This is indeed a capture of paradise. Also a well composed picture with the palms providing a strong diagonal against the line of the beach. The included persons add value to the picture.

Hi Miguel ,
This looks like the ideal place for a nice relaxing holiday . Nice waves lapping up to the very clean looking golden sand on the beach. Nice angle of your shot showining the tall leaning palm trees against the lovely blue sky.

There is a primal appeal to a sandy cove. I cannot explain it, but a gently lapping surf awakens my spiritual side. You show us a very tranquil scene -- thanks!
Please tell us -- what is a "silent noise party?!?!?!"

Goa may not be a paradise, but this beach would be a paradise for a lot of people. Such fine sand and inviting water and not even a handful of people. The man to the left is well placed near the corner and the leaning palms have created fine diagonal lines. Light and colours are perfect.

Superb composition, of unspoiled beach that is delicious with such a little people, I love the frame with these diagonals of palms.
Beautiful colorful and magnificent lighting, plus a perfect sharpness.
Have a good evening.

Heavenly beach scenery, Miguel, not crowded and looks exceptinally clean.
The curve of the shoreline gave wonderful dimension about, with the green trees, mostly plm trees "frame" the whole view.
Fine shot, good contrast and light manegement.

nice the view of the sandy beach in Palolem with the coconuts to create a very charmy backdrop as contrast perfect with the other colours of the scene.

A very nice photo of the kind of place I would like to be right now, as I get ready for the start of the academic year. It would be even better if the tops of the palm trees could be included.
mesutilgim (88194) 2013-08-21 12:14
Very nice capture with perfect layout.
The palmtrees at left part adds a very unique accent to your compo.
TFS and best regards

That's what we regard as a proper oriental beach, white sand and palm trees. It seems not to be a beach visited by many people. We like to be tanned but not to be burned, therefore we need the shadow of the palm trees.
macjake (60000) 2013-08-22 8:38
yes, when we think of India beaches don't pop into mind right away, but for sure there are beaches :)
its fun to take photos of such landscapes when the palm trees extend diagonally across the frame like this.
its even more fun to be here in person! haha
great reportage photo from India and Goa, warm and inviting, and peaceful on the beach.

Hello Miguel, give me sea and take my heart away...any seascape is favorite but this one is exotic too, nice cloudy tones but so very attractive as well!!
all the best

I have heard of Goa, but did not realize how truly beautiful it is there! I find this photo of a secluded beach well composed, and sharp. I also like the palm trees along the left side of the photo, they definitely add interest.
Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful tropical beach.
Very bright image of great colors and depth.
Your pictures like a postcard
fabbs99 (16813) 2013-08-25 20:31
Great shot from Palolem.The South Goa beaches are really exclusive with Majorda being my favorite followed by Colva.Magnificent vivid colors,contrast and superb overall quality of the image. TFS.
ourania (35100) 2013-08-26 13:19
you've composed and framed this picture very effectively, the view to the beach is lovely and inviting. There's great sense of depth and we irresistibly follow the beach and the landscape to the end. I like the way you've managed the light to ensure agreeable clarity and fine natural colours. I also like the diagonals of the trees and the intensity evoked by the heavy sky and the struggling sunshine. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

I love this one, nice memory for me of the beaches in Goa. The golden sand, big waves and the warm sea - I had a very happy time there. The leaning palms are awesome!
Have a terrific weekend!
