The composition with respect to the lines is great: the way the water zig zags towards the isle. Also the detail in the water is interesting. However with respect to colour, it's a little too bland for me to be able to really like the photo.

One Word ~Paradise~ just sums this up for me. I want to be there NOW! I love this, its like i could close my eyes and be there! The colours, water, sand and the hint of island forest wonder. I wonder what wildlife is in there?
Serious comment: The way the water and shoreline blend really hits me - in a powerful way. The sunset (or rise?) also panders upon the surface of the water and submerges my eyes in a very gleeful sensation, luring me into a pious viewpoint. Also, the mass of greenery in the corner really gives you a break from the nice hues and blends and places you in a much more pleasant move than before. Altogether, it just builds up and up until you are lost. Fantastic work.
