I like the shot the ONLY thing that bums me was that the you cannot see the top of the palm trees that are sort of "cutting" the image into three parts, would have been nice to see were the end!

Looks tone mapped is it?

I think it s a great combination of colors! But i think it missing something can i try to fix it a bit? and you can say what you like?

photophanatic...there are only two things I have to say...I love the colors, LOVE em...great exposure, to my eye...a little bright, but I like that...I think, I would like to see more of that tree on the right side, the one with all of the beautiful texture...the palm tree dissects it so you can not see the heart of that exquisite texture so I might have taken more of a 3/4 shot..so that the palm trees were not frontally positioned.. there is plenty of great textures in this photo a lot to see..and a great choice.

I, of course would have loved to see a wee little waddle. But, ya can't have everything...and this photo has a lot to offer sans quack.

Great place...great color...love the exposure, and wonder what Alex is up too?? We are probably in for a treat!!
