Three more pictures (main upload and two WS) from Paihia in Bay of Islands. I found the place really beautiful. Lovely beaches, fantastic tropical vegetation and the Maori culture as a bonus.

I do not know what kind of boats they are. Maybe catamarans? anyway, I found them interesting. Nothing special picture from Paihia.
The Bay of Islands is a New Zealand enclave encompassing more than 140 subtropical islands next to the country's North Island. It’s known for its undeveloped beaches, big-game fishing and Maori cultural artefacts. It's also home to the 19th-century whaling port of Russell, whose waterfront promenade is lined with remnants from its days as the country’s first colonial capital.

Hello Malgorzata

The yellow green grass is almost as eye-catching as the canary yellow hulls of the boats. Together they provide a stunning warm cold colour contrast with the blue sky. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

Hi Malgo
A very pleasant Bay of Islands scene helped by the yellow and red highlights. I assume that you went out on one of the cruises there?

Hello Malgo,
The main photo has the advantage of an interesting foreground, but personally I prefer both WS photos. Partly because of more attractive sceneries, partly because I think the colours are better and more natural in those photos. This one has a rather strong yellow tone, while both workshops are perfect.
Kind regards,

Ladny letni widoczek a przed nami zima :(
Przyjemny kadr i kompozycja.
Super kolorki i chmurki.
Milego dnia.

Hello Malgo,
An agreeably balanced composition with superb colour contrasts and excellent sharpness.

Hello Malgo,

Your main photograph is attractive because of its colours but I really do love the w/s, with their vast views, beautiful scenery and the well placed single boats, really enhancing the compositions.

Have a great day,
Bev :-)

Ciao Malgo,

Ils ressortent très bien ces petites embarcations jaunes. Elles brillent très fort sous cette forte lumière de Nouvelle Zélande.Même la peau de la dame est jaune.

quels bateaux jaunes et ce vert que de contraste avec le bleu de l'eau les autres bateaux fantastique captage et vue sueprbe avec ces rochers les collines sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié

Hello Malgo

As I'm sure other commentators have already told you, these boats are indeed catamarans: beach cats to be precise. The place does certainly look beautiful, although you've pushed the saturation up to make it look even more splendid!



Ciao Malgo
i colori forti di questa foto non avrebbero avuto lo stesso successo senza questo cielo.
Molto belli i panorami dei ws, viste belle e ampie.

Hi Malgo,

The wideness of the bay is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the boats and of the mountains in the background. The light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
