Default Vacation paradise

Thought this was a good representation of my recent Cancun vacation. Let me know what you think.

I like it although the sky looks unnaturally dark, have you done something here in PP?

Did you have a good time and where are the pretty ladies?

Looks like its right out of a Corona commercial. Very nice, but I agree with Mark about the sky.

Thanks guys. I used a CP, but also had saturation bumped up a bit (which I like to do for beach stuff). When I get a chance I'll tone down the extra saturation in the sky. Good catch!

How about this. Only the sky and water has been touched.

this really makes me want to go to that place. so you have definately succeeded with this photo. nice composition, pleasing colors (once the sky was toned down)

bynx edited version pretty much nails what i had in mind when i first looked at yours too.

yep, I agree. Lighter sky is definitely an improvement. I took a lot of shots of the resort and such, but this was by far my favorite - becuse it's so simple. Did I mention I miss the swim-up pool bar now that I'm back at work?

Like the shot, the two empty beach chairs with just enough of the chairs owners showing in the distance sitting at the waters edge give a wonderful relaxed feeling. Let see when is my next vacation?
