This is beautiful, especially the clouds; but I think I would have liked it better if you had cropped it tighter on the bottom to lose the chairs.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2006 07:45:26 PM
8 - Nice. Nice colors and sky/cloud capture. Perhaps a few 'issues' here and there, mainly in the palm, but fairly minor - in my opinion. Nice shot and scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2006 04:45:34 PM
You captured the feel of the south seas very well. The only bad thing about this picture is that I was not there.

Very pretty with excellent composition. Postcard type - would have loved a person in the chair. 8 good luck in the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I could wake up to that. Beautiful peach tones, and the lightest blue/gray, they look wonderful together in the sky and on the water.
