This is an out-take from the challenge "On the Beach" My image "Boat on the Beach" took 6th place (my best finish) but the rules for that challenge were BASIC EDITING - Given more freedom and CS3 instead of Elements 3 I took one of the 60 or so images I shot that morning ad decided to rework it.

I'm sitting in a cafe just beach side, finishing a wonderful meal with my lovely wife, and watching her as she relives her childhood, running along the beach just beyond the palms as the sun paints the clouds salmon, pink, and red as it falls into the Atlantic just off Africa.

03/16/2009 12:58:26 AM
Nice shot. Side note: It almost looks like the right palm is on fire.
03/15/2009 09:17:23 PM
Beautifully captured.
03/15/2009 08:17:42 PM
Ahh, my kind of place. Interesting angle with the cloud. Makes it look like the palm is on fire.

Almost like a drawing on the foreground and a photo in the background. Lovely.

Not voting yet.

Great clouds, love the lean of the trees and the boat... and an overall wonderful warmth.
03/15/2009 12:24:28 PM
This would also make a nice print! Good Comp. Bumpy
03/15/2009 11:58:38 AM
beautiful sunset, the challenge within the challenge this week, is to pick the best sunset shot. This one is ranking way up there at this point.
03/15/2009 11:51:37 AM
This has tropical written all over it. Nice simple shot and I like the line created by the leaning boat and tree.
03/15/2009 09:25:12 AM
I like the composition.
03/15/2009 03:40:02 AM
nice colors , recommend a tighter vertical crop with just the single tree and boat,6
03/14/2009 11:11:24 PM
03/14/2009 11:05:23 PM
Love the boat and the leaning tree.
03/14/2009 07:31:33 PM
This is beautiful!! Love the slight bit of contrasting colors (orange/blue) that add to the beauty.
03/14/2009 03:31:31 PM
Nice shot and tones. Love how the angle of the trees and boat work together!
03/14/2009 12:11:43 PM
Take me here to rest. It is so colorful and peaceful. Glad to see that touch of sun.
03/14/2009 11:11:37 AM
so very tranquil...soft colors...excellent tones...just a tad dark...but excellent none the less
03/14/2009 09:59:06 AM
Nice view. Makes me want to be there.
03/14/2009 05:44:41 AM
cool capture
03/14/2009 05:42:58 AM
Very peaceful view of the boat in the soft evening light.
03/14/2009 02:12:25 AM
Beautiful sky and light. A very serene and calming scene.
03/13/2009 11:12:30 PM
Nice clouds
03/13/2009 09:34:58 PM
Beautiful scenery. Wish I was there!
03/13/2009 06:20:37 PM
Great colors and composition.
03/13/2009 04:24:35 PM
The cloud makes that palm tree look like it's on fire :-) Nice work bringing out the detail in the boat. Serene image
03/13/2009 11:43:19 AM
Good composition, though the one tree on the left shows a tiny bit of sky and sea to it's left which is distracting. I like how the left tree stops the eye and the line of the beach brings the eye back around only to be led to the left again by the boat and trees. The sky and clouds look beautiful with great colors here.
03/13/2009 03:10:37 AM
perfect composition and color
03/13/2009 01:07:31 AM
Has a feeling very much like I get from a Gauguin painting. Wonderful sky, brilliant silhouettes ... a pleasing image.
03/12/2009 11:29:08 PM
Great composition! I wish the boat 'popped' a little more.
03/12/2009 10:07:37 PM
Beautiful sunrise or sunset in a location I'd love to be.
03/12/2009 09:34:47 PM
Beautiful, wish I was there/nice work.
03/12/2009 09:24:51 PM
looks like paradise, this could be a poster
03/12/2009 08:35:08 PM
Nice shot, I love the difference in textures between the puffy clouds and the sharp palm trees. I wish I was there right now.
03/12/2009 06:59:18 PM
Nice image
03/12/2009 03:56:40 PM
whoa, cool clouds and colors, just wish the trees on the left were more composition-ally satisfying
03/12/2009 01:15:27 PM
Very Pretty
03/12/2009 09:41:03 AM
I get a real relaxing feel from this shot, the tones are lovely
03/12/2009 09:28:24 AM
makes me want to go there. a tad more brightness in the boat would have been nice.
03/12/2009 08:40:55 AM
The clouds remind me of the Sistine Chapel.
03/12/2009 12:37:19 AM
all these beach photos are making me want to be there! Great image, it's so simplistic, so inviting.
03/11/2009 09:49:01 PM
I really like the pop of blue.
03/11/2009 09:21:36 PM

I like the balance of colours in the boat, and the sky. Really relaxing shot.
03/11/2009 08:10:17 PM
This could be a postcard - beautiful!
03/11/2009 06:42:01 PM
Looks calming
03/11/2009 04:49:05 PM
Nice. It's freaking 22 degrees (Farenheit) here and I'm looking at a beach... Very pretty shot. The boat seems a little fuzzy. Did you have to work on the levels around it? Wonder if that could have caused it. I like the colors in the sky and the clouds are very cool.
03/11/2009 01:32:17 PM
Rather evocative of Gauguin
03/11/2009 01:10:03 PM
I'm imagining a hammock strung between the trees ... with me lying in it sipping a pina colada! Gorgeous place!
03/11/2009 11:38:03 AM
a little more cropping from the left would have made this almost perfect. great shot
03/11/2009 09:31:51 AM
Very nice. I found the leaning palm a distraction at first, now i think it what makes it so special
03/11/2009 08:32:39 AM
I think if you had gotten a little lower it would have been a better perspective but its still nice!
03/11/2009 08:27:07 AM
Simply beautiful scene & wonderfully captured. Make a great calendar shot!
