-I happen to be on this side of the island the day I found out there was a challenge for framing. I've kayaked to those two islands, from what I've heard it's a common place for tiger sharks. The location is Lanikai, Hawaii, at one time I think it was considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world by travel magazine, I haven't been to all the beaches around the world to compare but I wouldn't mind updating that list if anyone wants to fund it ;)

With out bars.

Such a nice title to enhance the perception of this clean pristine beauty. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

-Thank you for the comments & votes. I received multiple "Whish I Was There" comments. Pink Floyd said it best "Wish You Were Here" Imagine an Island full of DPC'ers. For those who wished this picture wasn't obstructed by bars, wish no more.

7 - Very nice colors, good use of framing. Like to have seen the frame enhanced more 'somehow' - whether a tighter crop, something in pp, not sure. Texture and colors in the 'frame' are good and would like to have seen those elements stronger. Visually, looks like it is slanted downwards to the right, but I see the horizon is straight, so likely just a 'visual illusion', but fairly minor.

I know this will do well. Must have used a polarizer ... very nice.
06/20/2006 06:50:12 PM
The other one is probably the better photo, but htis is still excellent! Great job.
06/20/2006 01:21:31 PM
This is a wonderful photo, I wish I was there.
06/20/2006 06:48:22 AM
Ahh, I would like to go there. I love the colors Maybe you could had tilted the camera a little down to get more of the sky and less of the sea.

oh man, I'm such a sucker for a well exposed sky! Very well done! The colors are simply breathtaking, very well done! hope you score well!

Beautiful...makes me wish I was there. Crisp, clear, brilliant colours. Very nice.

I know you took the shot with the rails in it for this challenge...but I bet it's even better without it.....I'm not crazy about the rails as the frame, to me they don't enhance the image. Still a good shot though.
06/18/2006 11:52:10 PM
Beautiful framing, colors and scene. gets my best vote.
06/18/2006 09:25:50 PM
This is probably an excellent shot without the frame (and thus wouldn't meet the challenge). The pipes are a bit too powerful for me here.
06/18/2006 07:45:53 PM
I recognize that spot! :-) Love the colors and the sailboat... wish I were there!!
06/18/2006 05:19:44 PM
Beautiful cool tones of green and blue. Love this. 8

I give this one a 7 because I really need a vacation and I can just see myself on that beach, and it's great pic:)
06/16/2006 06:54:40 PM
very pretty image.
06/15/2006 04:10:19 PM
I like the contrast of the peeling paint on the rails with the perfection of the ocean.
06/15/2006 03:26:45 PM
Beautiful photo! The railing really brings this photo together!
06/15/2006 03:18:46 PM
Sharp picture, pretty water. What are you trying to imply with the iron bars?
06/15/2006 12:00:30 PM
I hope this finished top three....I love it. Great job on exposure with the difficult scene. You have really captured the entire feeling of the caribbean. 9 ~Good Luck~

Very pretty. Like the crisp focus. Wouldn't mind a swim after looking at your photo!
06/14/2006 08:48:46 AM
