This is what people who use Terragen wish they could create. But Nature does it best, I suppose.

The water is an amazing color. Very nice. :)

Is this photo for real? photoshop touchup maybe? the water hues are a fantasian dreamscape rather than a realistic landscape. stunningfully beautiful. a truely blessed part of gods great creation.

Lets hope the grubby fingers of greed and industry never touch this place.
And if it dose, may this picture bring shame to us all for letting it happen.

After the recent tragedys, I have been thinking often of your pictures from Phukett. You are fourtonate to have gotten to see that beauty while it was there, and hopefully it will someday be able to return to its prior state. Thank you for capturing the beauty.

Phukett got heavily hit by the tsunamis... I wonder if this area was heavily affected. This is a great shot, but I think the color on the water was slightly over done (too much hue/sat?) either way, still a great shot, and gets 9* from me.

Another Beauty. I love the colors, and the way the inlet goes back a long ways, almost making you want to just jump in the water and swim inland to see what you'd find. Pretty pretty pretty! Good Job. Going in my favorites list.

You are very fortunate to have been able to gone to Phukett. I was scheduled to stay in Phukett and the day I left Chicago, the tsunami hit. We had to redirect our stay to Chiang Mai. It was still a lovely stay, but to have seen the waters like this would have been a real treat. Wonderful shot.

I love it! It looks like a scene in a movie (a box office smash of course). The camera's at one end, and then it races across to the other end and stops on the main character's face. Something like that. Love the colors in the water, you captured them very well.
