Wow, a second home boy in the top 4! Great shot. I was close on the Blacks Beach comment, just a few miles north in Del Mar.

Pretty nice shot, still don´t really connect to what this young man is doing, why is he jumping? Dig the DOF and tones in it though, gave a 7.

Great stop-motion and timing. This looks like Black's Beach, but I suppose it could be any of many beaches.

Nice capture - Love the tones - The flicking sand works brilliant as does the nice blown out background - We will be seeing this on the first page.

Beauty. Perhaps the best yet. Perfect DOF, great contrast, great sense of movement.

Nice job, sharp subjet and nice tones. Not enough here to really know what the lad is doing (skiing etc) still a good shot and the square crop works in this instance.

I get a real sense of action from this one. Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2007 03:28:48 PM
Very nice tones and detail...especially in the spraying sand. A bit haloing around your subject though.

I can't stretch my imagination as far as you

Great action shot! I love that your shutter speed was so fast that you caught all those little granules in the air.
