An idyllic tropical beach on Cadlao Island, easily reached by Bangka boat (a Filipino outrigger canoe) from El Nido town, on the Palawan Island mainland. There are a couple of bangkas on the beach. The snorkelling here is pretty good, too. I've dodged the shadows, & burned in the highlights, for a more even exposure overall.
Cadlao Island is just one of many tropical islands in the gorgeous Bacuit Archipelago. Tours A, B, C & D depart El Nido at 9 am, & return around 4 pm. They include a fresh fish & salad lunch, for a very reasonable 500-700 Pesos (about $12-15).

The use of the natural frames works very well as we gaze on this tropical paradise. The exposure is very well managed and the image has excellent light and natural tones.

The trees are framing well the beach and the sea. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tropical scenery. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

WOW..nice Aqua color sea with white sand..
Very romantic I guess. POV between the trees is very well observed and you have executed it smartly.
