Thank you to all the voters and commenters. I am extremely humbled by the comments and the fave's are really something else!

This is my first 7 score and it is flat-out 7.0000. I never thought it would stay @ 7 as it was @ 6.9ish for most of the voting period.

This photo was shot in Boracay, Philippines during my 3 week stay there. I grew up in the Philippines but it was my first time going to that beach. We went there on a low season where it's less crowded and although it is rainy season in the Philippines, we were lucky enough to have sun shiny days for most of the days that we stayed there. The beach has powdery white sand, crystal clear waters and a long shoreline lined with coconut trees. That combination produces a great photo opportunity!

I'm not a member so I can't vote on member challenges. Instead, I look through the entries for images that make me stop clicking on to the next one. This is one of those images....

Okay, this one really made me stop and stare. Hope it does well.
