I like this effect here with the silhouette of the cliff jutting out into the water and the colored blossoms overlaying it in the foreground. Very nice. I think this would have had just a little more impact to me if it had been cropped in on the left side just a little to remove the distracting edges of that bush in the lower left corner and if the bottom had been cropped up just a little. This, IMO, would help to center the story of the dark cliff silhouette as a background for the nearer, colored blossoms. I think that is the strength of this shot as a silhouette. As just a location shot the whole thing works to make me want to visit.

Oooo, this looks like this could be a Travel Agent picture! I love the foreground framing, the purple adds a nice touch the shot. I love the detail of the water. This shot really gives the feel of being very expansive, giving the shot a lot of depth. Well done!

Very nice island silhouette. Pink colors on the left and bottom add a nice feel.

Nice lighting and wonderful view. I like this one, hope you do well. Maybe the leaves on the left could of been left out?
