beach days #6
This one was tricky to perfect, and I almost gave up on it altogether. Alex didn’t like the hibiscus, but I thought it worked, so I went with it anyhow. It’s actually been the most popular of the whole series, I would say, so I’m glad I stuck to my instincts. It is set in Cancun, Mexico.

Nicely balanced image with a very appealing array of textures and color contrast.
thanks John – appreciate the comment!
That’s a Wow!
thanks – what a lovely thing to say 🙂
Beautiful! I love the way the colors, textures, and layers all work together.
thank you, Chris. I was pleased with how it came together!
The hibiscus is almost like the crown of a rooster, except sported by a parrot. That surreal notion coupled with the texture, color and dimension is captivating!
There’s a little element of surreal I guess – I like the idea of a crown!
This is so beautiful! I love the texture of the grass and how you managed the layers.
Fantastic! My favourite so far.
It’s wonderful – there’s so much here, but it doesn’t lose anything at all by including so much because you balanced it so well.
Yes it’s quite busy – which was my worry, but I’m glad you think it works.
My favourite too!
Wow – great shot.
