Awesome shot. It reminds me of the floating piers we had in a lake near here when I was a kid. We had a blast jumping off that thing. Keep up the good work.

Great shot with beautiful colors!

Ok, I know I have a weird mind...but the first thing that popped into my mind as soon as I saw this picture was the "Jaws" music.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Madeira Island,Portugal. A place called Caniçal that have the most clear water beaches you´ve ever seen.
Time
I guess it was in the beggining of the afternoon. Can´t be precise about time.
Lighting
Yes. I wanted to get the most out of lighting and the reflection on the water. I tried to focus on those two aspects. Almost as the light would lead the eye of people.
Equipment
I used a simple camera FinePixXP50,nothing professional. It was a waterproof camera so I was in the water when I took it.
Inspiration
I was inspired by the clear water and the people that were in the back. I noticed that the swell on the water led exactly to where those people were standing. So it came out with great POV and depth. I can say that the water plays a big part in this photo. I think it has a strong "I´m here" felling.
Editing
Yes. That day wasn´t as clear as it is on the photo. It was a bit cloudy. I just simply added a blue filter and enhanced the main light points so that the swell on the water could easily lead the eye of the people. I don´t like to change the photo´s aspects, just enhance the best features that are already there.
In my camera bag
I normally use a Lumix dmc-fz47 or a Cannon 600D depending on what I want to do.
Feedback
You should look for a balance between light, reflection and color. Try to focus on depth and how something that´s on the foreground (in this case the water) could lead the eye to what´s in the background. Build a "path" between those two aspects.
