There is something magical and serene with the caribbean. Its beauty along with its laid back lifestyle provides a perfect formula for just taking it easy and a little slower.
The secret to good landscape photographs is in the depth of field. Using a high f-stop number like f22 or even higher will get the largest number of objects in the frame in focus. Be careful though by not blowing out the high lights. To resolve this, you will need a fairly fast shutter speed in order to compensate.
Outdoors, like in these photographs do not warrant the need for a tripod. Light is so abundant you will be hard pressed to get a framed shot out of focus.
