..okay, some complained about the featureless sky (including me), some liked the featureless sky (including me).. so i thought of doing a little bit of (sloppy) work and added a blue sky with fluffy clouds.. whee! (now i’m off to bed..)
..there are several ways to go about exploring the islands.. walking, taxi, bus, car, bike and scooter.. the latter option was what i chose during my first day there.. it came with a helmet with the company’s name emblazoned on the forehead, as if to let the locals know that i’m a tourist and a pretty ignorant bloke who’s used to driving at the right side of the road, (they drive at the left side of the road) roads which were pretty skinny, cars were the size of mini coopers.. speed limit was 35kph but everyone was driving faster than that so i sometimes floored the gas on long stretches of the road which was pretty cool, but admittedly dumb.. equipped with a bunch of maps i think i covered a lot of places even though it was raining/drizzling.. i was pretty soaked but had a lot of fun.. and i got home in one piece (despite a few close calls)
..this one was taken on a bay on the western tip of pembroke parish after a 30-minute drive through the blinding drizzle..

Great blue sky 😉 Gotta love the boat too, so colorful and obviously frequently used. Like the pov and feel of depth when looking at the boat, very nice 🙂
Ah and the Guinness extra stout is good too 🙂 I have been tasting some Porters now, and they are even stronger, and quite a mouthful… can take a bit to get used to, but they are tasty too 🙂
A very nicely observed shot, Rian. With or without a featureless sky, I like it
You made the right choice…my wife and I chose scooter and it became very close to the very good but very short honeymoon followed by a hospital visit. Doh! I love the sky and overall shot composition. The sand is a bit too warm (appears pink but maybe the calibration of this monitor) for my taste but still a great shot.
The strikingly blue boat dominates the shot. A beautiful cloudy sky adds to the charm. Nice one.
WoW! What a blue!!!
great colors in that boat. sounds like an awesome time, rain and all.
Love the blues, cool shot!
Love the vibrant colors…the blue just leaps out at you! Nice perspective as well.
Fantastic colors … great !
I think your title covers this subject perfectly 😉
Wow! sky and the boat….beauty:-)
excellent use of color treatment displayed here Rian! It looks like some sort of vacation place here!
What a scenery! The colors are outstanding, a real joy watching this photo. I really love, great frame!
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Nice and funny processing, I like the contrast between the sky and the boat.
Well you did a good job with the edit…I might not have know it was not naturally there.
You can always fool some of the people some of the time, Rian. 😀
i also could’ve not mentioned about the ‘edit’ and see what the other’s reaction would be.. lol! tsk3.. a missed opportunity..
Great colours and the boat sits nicely in the frame.
We dare to be different here and suggest that the image might have been just as good without the clouds. As it is it is competing with the boat.
….and, there is no cheating…
Wonderful picture of the blue boat.
Love the vivid colors. Must be nice to be on the coast:-)
cool boat and sand! before i read your comment about the sky i thought hey what’s going on here – he got a not flat sky day.
thanks! 🙂 i just had that “what if” epiphany last night and decided to go for this funky approach..
Ah warmth and sun and bright colors – must be nice! Like your framing where the boat fills the whole bottom part of the photo and the sky works well because it repeats the blue –
Wow love the intense colors in this photo!
