*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An excellent image that is assumed to meet the challenge.

Infra red is usually interesting but doesn't always work well with everything but it is here. Those lovely rich blues of the sky are amazing and working well against that bleached beach and the colours of the palms, its all wonderful. As for the composition, I disagree with your commenter, I think you have hit it spot on here, I much prefer it in this format. For me the only thing that really lets this down is that ugly light on the tree, I think it would be most beneficial to attack that with the cloning tool.

Apologies for the late critique but thanks for a great entry, Sid

Really like the IR, and you did a great job with the details in the leaves. Looking at the lines of trees I'm wondering of there was a way to go landscape and shoot down the lines? Doesn't take away from this shot, but leaves me wanting something else.
