Came back to check the result and just enjoy the photo. Beatiful. Just forget it some times voters here do not know anything.

It looks like you used a selective coloration to this image which is against the basic rules set.

Excellent capture, great com, great emotional value, light flat, good texture of the waves, crip enough, overall a good image.

Beautiful!

The oranges and grays of the desaturation make for a very bold color dynamic. The grays also give a bit of a moodiness to the photo. Very nice photo!

Great action capture, I might crop it with more space above the board than below to give more of a feeling of being in the air

Awesome! You were able to capture the essense of this challenge perfectly. I love the color of the water and how the orange sail jumps out at you. I would have considered cropping more of the bottom, but that is just me. Great job

Well captured, but the composition could have been just a little more interesting.

good capture, wish the sea and sky weren't so dull - could have been enhanced in post-processing. had aso cropped off 10-15% at right to make the composition less centered

would have been better if the sky were clearer (which, granted, you couldn't really help). Bringing out more blue and/or green in the water would have been an improvement too

Nice crisp action shot, but the desaturated water is not helping in my opinion. 7
