It's snowing outside this morning as I upload this photograph, which is probably why I chose it. This image was made 10 years ago when we spent some time in Fiji when we lived in Australia.
Tavarua is a heart shaped island in Fiji. It has an area of 29 acres (120,000 m2). The island is close to the main Fijian island, Viti Levu, and is surrounded by a coral reef.

Six year old but a wonderful and a warm image while here falls snow in Belgium and minus 2 degree Celsius.
What a lovely place nice in the sun and nice white sand and blue water of the sea, but you came back to England!
What a lovely image with different colors and fantastic light management.
Excellent captured, nice composed, TFS.
Have a nice week,

Hello Will ,
Une jolie cabane de Robinson , perchée dans l'arbre , et une bien jolie plage de sable blanc. Belle et lumineuse image tropicale.

i want to live there, in that treehouse.
good colours, DOF and a stunning location.
TFS, even though i am green with envy.

This is my unsubstantiated impression of Fiji!
Blue sea, pale sands and, of course luxurious warmth. I think, as a Robinson myself, I would love to be in the tree-top paradise!
Very well composed, the focal images strongly placed.
You may be interested to know that there is a survival documentary on BBC, possibly tonight, about a man who is marooned on a Fijian island with no support and has to live there without modern aids.

what a lovely scene! Just makes me want to leave everything and go to the beach. Nice composition with this little tree house and some holidaymakers on the beach. Good colors and light.
Thanks for sharing

When it's snowing outside only shot like this one can bring me a good mood!
Very good composition executed with fantastic color saturation and contrast. Amazing work! Like it! Thanks for sharing.

Avery well composed shot with these two persons at perfect positions.Great colors and contrast ,but a lot of noise in the wonderful blue sky.
I tried a workshop, autofiltered with neatimage.

Hi Will, a charming scene in this beautiful place, nicely captured with great POV, excellent and beautiful in this picture. A magnified image with very good sharpness, depth, light and color. Nice good job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this great work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

From the tree hut you probably have a beautiful view over the coastline. A heart shaped island ?
That's very special!
I find it a little inappropriate that those staying in the tree hut can use a footbridge :) A bit of climbing is recommended after having spent the whole day at the beach.
This is quite a humorous picture from paradise.
Best regards, Paul

An oldie but goodie, Will. The balance between the large and impressive treehouse and the woman at lower right is perfect - a real flow created here. Add to that a peaceful and seemingly deserted spot and you've got a really idyllic image here, one that I could easily see in Fiji travel brochures!
Miguel82 (27752) 2013-03-12 15:27
Snowing also here Will,
Very clear shot, excellent sharpness, a really paradisiac place

looks like an idealic location. Interesting architecture and good composition

Formidable cette cabane posée sur l'arbre, le sable blanc, un bleu sublime de la mer, un endroit exotique merveilleux, très belle présentation
sacavem (18620) 2013-03-15 7:35
Excellent point of view and excellent sharpening, too.Colours are interesting great shot, good work!
abmdsudi (58302) 2013-03-15 9:06
Lovely ideas Will, to see a beach in the wintery months, its a great image wonderfully captured from a wonderful point of view. We are attracted to bold colors of sea, sky, the lush greenry and of course the tree hut is so comfortable for Robinson Crusoe and man Friday! A beautiful shot with good sense of location too. Well done,
delpeoples (59886) 2013-03-15 23:37
I love the clean crisp colours and shapes. The photo has aged well, with only a very small amount of colour noise in the sky. The minimalism is excellent and you composed the shot really well.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely weekend

A succinct note informs this highly appealing scene. The composition where the tree house is the focal point, there is the extraordinarily beautiful background, and the inclusion of the human element. Just this morning on television they had a program on tree houses around the hills of Marin County, across from San Francisco. With the poor economy, there has been a growing industry of B&Bs, including such tree houses on old oak trees.

Wonderful place and details by the sea!
Attractive and inviting picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
bayno (18344) 2013-04-12 19:46
this is a dream place...the scene is well framed and with very good blue tones (sky and sea), also the details is excellent, is a digital file or is a scann? i don'care about noice in this case, anyway the quality is outstanding, i been not in Fiji but i been in New Caledonia and i think is very similar...a paradise...
EstelleJ (921) 2013-04-18 14:41
This is a fantastic image to see in anticipation of the summer! Fiji seems to be one of those places that portray Paradise here on Earth! Amazing luscious colors, sun-drenched beach, very exotic-looking tree-house - all this appears to be so tranquil, far away from every day reality.

Looks like Robinson Crusoe's house ! Nice composition and great colours. Best regards,
