Gorgeous picture - WOW, does it grab your attention! Very creative and original - love the mood it communicates. As I explored this scene, I felt the need to see more of the building and lighthouse - so I cropped it a bit on the right to allow the focus to be on the buildings. See what you think - it's just another approach to this area scene.

Thanks Gunter for the good words. I can certainly approve of your edits. I liked the full frame because of the magenta and orange/red colors that existed on the far right as those colors were also projecting on the left also.   Posted: 01/14/2022 16:14:02

I love the colors here. Very nice. I like it cropped too, but I would go the other way. I then increased the saturation of the reds a little. Nice job.   Posted: 01/16/2022 14:09:38

Great picture Bob. I like your composition with the lighthouse at the centre, fixed in position by the horizontal and vertical red light. Wonderfully atmospheric, I don't think I would want to change anything.   Posted: 01/17/2022 06:22:14

Thanks Stephan. Great to hear from you. I was briefly thinking that Bora Bora might of been too close to Tongo Volcano. In the process I did see where island is closed off because of Covid. Hope that is outdated and you are able to work . Take Care.   Posted: 01/17/2022 16:09:37

Hi Bob, We are actually visiting in CT and then FL a few days to return to Bora at the end of January. The border has been opened to tourism since May but it is a bit a hassle with all the testing required! We spent 1o days in CT in May to photograph a wedding, went back to Bora and thinking it was going to be slow we took off mid-June to end of July to France and have actually have been very busy since we returned from France. I know there was a bad week of Rain this past week with high tides and flooding in several islands but it does not seem to be linked to the Tsunami.

Ahh. Excellent. Great to know you are in the states and enjoying. Maybe hasn't been prime time to visit CT but FL will be more to your liking. Take Care   Posted: 01/17/2022 21:32:01

Great color with a touch of mystery. I can see the house and lighthouse better in Gunter's version, but not sure why. I think either crop suggested could work. I would prefer to see less foreground. You show it does pay to get up early!   Posted: 01/20/2022 18:08:02
