Another view of the El Nido town beach. It's not bad at all, but there are better beaches around the islands & Bacuit archipelago. This beach is mainly used as a start & finish point for daytrips to the islands for snorkelling & sightseeing.
In the background are some of the limestone karst peaks. I liked the backlight here and excluded the washed out sky as this was taken looking towards the setting sun late afternoon.

Wow, this place is incredible! So beautiful! I love the atmopshere too, the BG is fantastic, as well as the play of lights and shadows.

this is a very beautiful picture from a great point of view that leads the eye to follow the well placed curve of the shore and delight in the lovely scenery. The decision to keep the sky out of the frame was excellent, you've only kept the fantstic light that enlivens the view and its colours in a fantastic way. The buildings along the shore, the woman walking towards you and the two figures at the back add great scale and depth. Clarity and colours are amazing. Congratulations and thank you for the photo and the magic light.
All the best, have a great month,

this looks to be an incredible spot. the little wooden houses on the beach give the pplace such character. while the trees and cliffs provide a wonderful natural backdrop behind the sea. excellent depth of field, and lovely bright colours.

I love this series of yours! You have found an incredibly beautiful place for taking these pictures. Perfectly executed with superb saturation and color contrast. Well done.

Good Morning Chris,
I think you are right, it is often more sensible to crop washed-out skies which add nothing to the impact of the shot and often drain the colour from the rest of the shot.
This looks idyllic; the sea lapping against the shore, the curved beach leading around the frame, pastel coloured houses and a lady in red, attracting the eye like a magnet! Fine details in this fine composition.
Have a lovely day,

The curve of the beach is an asset to the composition. The distance between the beach and the hills is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tropical scenery. The afternoon light os enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

This picture is indecent.
Do you realize the chance you had to be at such a dream place?
Wonderful and...lazy image,like the Woman in Red coming nonchalantly...

the beach is incredibly beautiful,even if it's not the most beautiful of Palawan. I love these impressive cliffs with the vegetation on them.The water is wonderful.Magnificent!
rychem (40738) 2012-04-01 12:04
Beautiful view of the beach, fantastic green of the nature and green tones of the water
PaulVDV (31199) 2012-04-01 12:50
The composition is good with that curve of the beach. Wonderful how this small village is clamped between the sea and the steep towering limestone cliffs. And even more wonderful is that tropical view of the abundant greenery growing everywhere on those white cliffs.
It looks very idyllic.
Best regards, Paul

it is not bad at all :). I wouldn't mind to spend a day or two here. Wonderful palms and small houses in the background and you were lucky to see this lady in red going, she provides an eye catching accent.
It seems a magic place.

un petit coin de paradis avec ces pans rocheux bien typiques de cette région du pacifique, souvent secouée de séismes.
Un bel endroit pour passer des vacances tranquilles.
Jolie palette de verts.

Wow! This is very familiar place now for me. Unfortunately, I did not have a trip around the islands around Palawan. The reason: the rains and the grey sky. Everyone said me: you can't recognize Coron and Palawan on the photos after this trip. Sad story, but so I know more about the local life.
Excellent photo from the El Nido beach.
