What a location, and yes it does look like a dream spot for sure...and the hunky guy's presence doesn't hurt either :-) Great depth of field to show off that spectacular scenery and the lighting is perfect for catching all those wonderful tropical-destination blues and greens. Some bleachiness in the clouds, always a pet peeve of mine, but not enough to be a huge distraction. So why didn't this image do better? I think the composition needs improvement. Shooting down at your focal point, the man, almost seems to downplay his role in the pic. I feel that he is competing with the scenery, not being complemented by it. A lower angle may have brought him into more prominence without losing the rest of the scene. And strictly fwiw I would have cropped the image more, either as a square and done away with the second body of water to the right, or cropped out the top third and got rid of the majority of the sky. Especially as landscapes are popular FS subjects, we see an awful lot of them here, so you really need a stunning one to do well in FS.

Hope this critique has been of help, feel free to PM me with any comments or questions.
