The sky turned it on for me that day and made for a decent shot.
Not much fiddling with this shot afterwards. I think that a gradient tint was added to the top left just for a bit more atmosphere.
This young fella was waiting to go on a fishing trip further out but was kind enough to stick around until I was done.
The water was soooo warm...

Welcome to Trekearth. This is a spectacular shot of the native in his dugout (is it?) seemingly contemplating the immense ocean that lies in front of him. The composition, colors, resolution — and yes the sky — all collaborate in creating a genuinely magnificent photo.

Very nice composition and also very impressive exposure and colours. The scene and wide view are terrific too.

I really like the way you framed this picture. The position of the sky line is perfect and the cloudy sky is great.

Such an inviting photo, the perfect water, the perfect sky, the man suspended between them in calm contemplation. Such a lovely capture. Congratulations. Judy
