9 am is about as stressful as it ever gets in El Nido. That's when everyone heads to the beach to board the tour boats or 'bangkas' on tours A,B,C, or D around the Bacuit Archipelago. This is the view towards cloud shrouded Cadlao Island, from El Nido Beach, a little before 9 am. Just checked the view details & it is showing 9:52. Actually it was an hour before then (8:52am) as Korea time is different to Philippines time. If you are wondering what happened to 'Waiting for the boat I', or just want to see more of Cadlao Island at right, it's HERE

Exactly or the mountain care for smoke, the clouds care for a very well composition, also the lot boats on the river.
You found a good subject for a good picture.
Perspective and depth are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.

The distance between the boats and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats and of the mountains. The morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day

Hello Chris! Fantastic location, perfect image of city, with great dynamic of POV excellent idea and composition notes and configuration, but of course the "eyecatcher" are these good colors and contrast of the sky with characteristic architecture and effect of clouds!!. Very well composition, also the lot boats on the river. a good subject for a good picture.Perspective and depth are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.

The landscpae reminds me the islands near Krabi in Thailand, also many such rocks, covered with forest, coming out of emerald sea. The mountain here with the cloud looks like volcano in eruption. Tge boats look very funny, I would also like to board such a boat and make a trip around islands.

A wonderful place to be. Like the tip pointed hill with cloud touching it like the smoke coming out from the chimney. Nice light with wonderful boats. Great capture,
have a great time,

Oh yeah, really stressful that :) I think I could do with a whole lot of that type of stress, thank you. I love the glassy water and those amazing emerald colours. The surrounding mountains are simply breathtaking. What an amazing scene you've captured. And now you're putting thoughts of travel to a country that I would never have thought of before to travel to :)
Thanks and have a good day

From my POV, that cloud over the mountain is the key in the picture.
