Natadola Beach, Viti Levu, Fiji. This beach has the reputation of being one of the best on the main island, and it didn't disappoint. Despite this, however, the place was nearly empty: this group was almost the only one on the whole white crescent. I included them in order to "populate" the scene. There was a reef offshore, so the waves on the beach were not too big for my two kids to have a great time. Shot on transparency film and scanned at 3200 dpi on a Nikon film scanner.

lovely point of view and composition with several layers of interest. I like the framing of the beach and the carefree group of friends by the palm trees. I love the fantastic bright colours, the rendering of the warm sunlight and the splendid atmosphere. Well done and thank you for bringing warmth to a difficult winter day!
All the best,

A picture to show to the travel agencies to welcome tourists: sun, white sand beach and a lovely turquoise sea, what else?

the colors are wonderful, and I like very much how you have framed the people with the palmtrees, it was a good idea to keep them in order to remove them.This is superb.
