Malapascua Island is in the northernmost island of Cebu bordering Leyte. The island earned its fame because of the presence of the shy Thresher Shark along Monad Shaol which is also its the cleaning station along with the Manta Ray, Turtles and some pelagics. The white sandy beach and its tranquility attracts non scuba divers as well.

The photo was taken after the last dive of the day while sipping some beer facing the western horizon watching the magical beauty as darkness engulfs the day.

Great shot, nice interaction.

Lovely colors and tonality in this one. Well done!

Excellent composition: everything is at the right place, more particularly the divers. Well spotted! And the colours are very fine too.
However, I believe that this picture is a little too dark and slightly oversaturated. Little correction in those ways could certainly bring up more nuances yet.
But your image is really a beautifull one though.

Sorry for the term "divers", faulty.
Please read "the two persons" in replacement.
Thank you.

Very well seen and photographed. The two kids makes this one extra nice!
