Shelly- What a fantastic view you give us of this paradise. Unbelivable pov and stunning composition that lets us enjoy so much of what you saw. Love the tropical colors that bring warmth and a relaxed state of mind. The color contrast of the land and water and the way they break up the picture is incredible. In particular I love the boats on the water and the way they fill the lagoon as if someone took them and just put them there in a ramdom fashion.
Marvelous work my friend.
Have a beautiful day, take care.
