Christmas decorations at Siam Beach on the island of Koh Chang, Thailand.

Here I awaited the right light in the evening. The idea was to have similar exposure values for the sky, the barbeque area, and hopefully not blow out the illumination.

I like the outcome very much and I think it confirms the old rule of thumb that a photographer must be patient and wait for the light.

Straighten up the horizon, crop out the table and shade on the right and this improves it for me.
