Another view of the attractive, tropical beaches of Oahu, Hawaii. Taken north of Waikiki, along a less frequented section of the beach, away from the hordes of package tourists. Diamond Head, a dormant volcanic cone, is over on the left, just out of frame.

Une plage qui fait réver, un belle assemblage de couleurs entre le sable, la mer et le ciel.
Merci pour cette belle image et bonne journée.

Fantastic tropical beach, excellent framing and composition, I like the way that the shoreline "embraces" the whole frame! Excellent light managment, fantastic colours! Congratulations!

Good sweeping view across the beach with its inviting sand waiting to be walked across. The curving shoreline makes a good lead towards the headland. Good natural tones and clarity. Thanks for sharing.
PS Regarding your last post, you might want to take a look at Image Analyser. It's free and the deconvolution filter makes a useful sharpening tool.

Awesome tropical beach! Hawaii is another dream-place for me!
I like the soft lights and colors in this one - your style!
Viewpoint was very well chosen and the composition, though simple, again is pretty effective! Sharpness is adequate to the image and exposure is totally correct! Many fine details very well captured by you! I really enjoy it! Makes me want to be there!
TFS - Congratulations!

Hardly crowded at all. It seems that you picked the right beaches.
Very attractive tropical coastal landsape,

The presence of the people has an effect of scale. The curve of the beach is an asset to the composition. The palm trees and the bushes are framing well the beach. The point of view takes our eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the photo. The quality of the light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. have a nice day.

Jolie plage des tropiques, j'aime le POV avec la mer qui viens caresser le sable, la personne dans cet eau limpide, c'est sur ça donne envie d'y etre
Good day for you

So you did stop over in Hawaii too!
Seems like you found a nice beach too, with the attractive pinkish sand...
Good point of view, a well done classical beach composition!

Indeed very attractive! Beautifully composed, great looking colours. I wouldn't mind seeing the 'other kind' of beauty from closer. :D I am joking, that's not a flaw.
BelCan75 (2201) 2009-03-17 14:11
Oh how I wish I was there right now...so beautiful! I love this view with the curved beach and the waves rolling in. The colour of the water is quite amazing. Great POV with beautiful details and such a beautiful sky. Great work!

une photo qui fait rêver de vacances avec la couleur de l'eau d'un vert sous un ciel qui donne du contraste et du relief au cadrage

A fine composition making good use of the curve of the beach as lead-line.water,sand, sky and palm trees are just idyllic.
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2009-03-17 16:16
The detail of the people...great! Is what makes the picture lovely!

Belle photo tropicale Chris,
un peu trop exposée, des lumières assez fortes.
J'aime beaucoup la couleur de l'océan. Un bien joli ciel.

After one of our friend José (Zeca), is another view of paradise that makes me dream and think about the next holiday !!! Great view on the almost deserted beach. Natural colors are very nice and I appreciate the clarity of water. Thank you Chris.
With all my friendships and soon

Great catch with the wind in the palm trees and the beautiful color of sand and water.
Angshu (56750) 2009-03-20 3:46
A typical beachscape..the turquoise waters are beautiful. there seems to be quite a wind judging by the palm trees. Lovely smooth sand as well
mauro61 (52855) 2009-03-20 3:55
immagine dai colori ben saturi e dall'ottima inquadratura.
Mi piace il gioco di nuvole nel cielo e l'inclusione dei bagnanti nella composizione.
un caro saluto

Thanks for sharing this beautiful shot of Diamond Head Beach. Love the gorgeous blue of the ocean and those white billowing clouds. We were in Waikiki for 2 weeks and drove all around the island but never went to this part of the beach. Perhaps on another occasion. TFS.
