Kahana Bay, Oahu island, Hawaii
I took this picture with my tripod in neck-deep ocean water. Standing just a few steps of the shore, I was in the middle of a school of tiny fish; hundreds and hundreds of them. They didn't mind my presence and I didn't mind theirs.
The interesting thing about this side of the beach is that it is "covered". You can walk some 15-20 steps into the sea, until you are neck deep, and the branches of the kamani tree with it's big leafs will be still shading you gently from above. How's that... swimming in the ocean with a school of fish - under a tree.

Beautiful colours. This conveys powerfully the feeling of being there in the ocean.

Well, this is just a repetition of what Martin said, because those colours *are* beautiful. You've also had luck with the pattern of changing light/shadow on the hills which add - don't know if it's called "depth"? - to the photo.

I like the way you picked the middle of the mountain it looks like its welcoming with both hands close together,the whole mood is so refreshing

I like the scenery very much, though the photo needs a little more dimension.

The absolute tone of green colour in many variations.

Wow! Excellent capture. I'm assuming your camera was in a water proof case for this (?).

No one's mentioned it... the almost perfect reflection of the "waves" of the mountainside in the real waves of the water. The reflected greens enhance that aspect, making this a really good fluid photo. Great choice of angle, from the water's surface too.

Juts fantastic! The play of water reflections and the dynamic of green mountains
