    I just got back from a month in Okinawa, and got the chance to shoot a few beautiful ocean scenes from different places on the islands.
    Luckily the seascapes are so beautiful it didn't require much skill to get a few amazing shots.. :biggrin:

    Nice pics! Thanks for sharing. What lens did you use? Some of the shots might have worked better by going a bit wider.

    Awesome photographs!
    I've thought about visiting Okinawa many times. Now you've settled it for me.

    In terms of photography, I especially love the 3rd and 5th photographs. The third one has so many lovely shades of green and captures a dynamic inter-relationship between sea and air.

    The 5th one conveys a sense of clarity in various ways.
    I hope that someday I can shoot like that.

    Great pics! I lived in Okinawa for 3 years in the late 90's and just loved it! I didn't want to leave and would go back if I could.
