paddle board, paddle and the required suit.

it might be more of a seascape to some, but the tools in play seemed more compelling than a closeup of them doing nothing.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique club*

An appealing image that meets the challenge.

I agree with your comments this is a much more dynamic and appealing image than simply photographing the static equipment. Your timing is good with him riding the crest of the wave but I think the background would have been better rendered in softer focus with a wider aperture it rather feels that he is about to crash into the cliffs. It would also have been a lot better if all three of them had been in action at the same time, as it is it merely emphasises how tame the environment is if it is shallow enough for them to stand up in.

The exposure is generally good with detail in most of the white water but the darl shadow from the cliff is very dominant and overpowers the image as a whole. The composition is appropriate for the content.

Thanks for your entry, sorry you didn't get any comments during the challenge, I hope this helps, Sid
