[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ko Tapu is an island located in the Phang Nga Bay, Thailand. It has become a popular tourist attraction since it was featured in the James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun in 1974; for this reason, it is also often referred to as James Bond Island. Ko Tapu island is about 20 meters tall, and lies approximately 150 meters offshore of the two-islet pair known as the island Ko Khao Phingkan.
Departing from Phuket island, day-tours using longtail boats usually land at Ko Khao Phingkan, where market booths are set up. The islands are located within the Ao Phang Nga National Park.

Hi Franco!
I know this place very well- I had a picture in a wall which I cut from an old callendar, very similar to Your pic but from different point of view. I always wanted to see this place in real...maybe some day.
Nice composition and natural colours.

Ciao Franco,

Hello Franco,

Ciao Franco,queste formazioni rocciose sono davvero incredibili,e poi riflettono nell'acqua un verdognolo stupendo,complimenti e grazie per avrcele mostrare,Luciano

Hallo Franco
I really like this photo. It is colourful and relaxing to look at. A nice and calm scenario you have posted here. It reminds me off holiday places where you want to escape to when the daily rat-race gets too much. Calm mix of sea and sky, and I just would like to run into that water as it looks so inviting. No wonder the James Bond movie was shot here. Excellent work! Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Franco,

a beatiful place to wanne be, lovely composition.
sharpness are good with beautiful clors.
I personally prefer with landscape 2:3 but this is a good picture.
Maybe right what shadow/highlight for more detail, its theree a little dark through the shadowsite.

Regards Gert
