I just noticed that the image info on this photo is incorrect. The aperture should be 5.0 and the shutter 1/1000. The city in the background is Vancouver, Canada and the girl on the board was the BC womens skimboarding champion back in '98. And no she didn't bail :-)

Sent you a private email, but for everyone else to see... this shouldv'e ranked higher. Great shot! You should be very proud of it!

Wow, I really expected this to rate considerably higher. This is a masterful shot.

That looks like fun! I really like the way the city serves as a backdrop.

Nicely shot, backdrop is great. I hope that water isn't too polluted.
06/30/2002 12:11:00 PM
Nice capture.

great picture!

Very nice action shot, well composed, with a great skyline in the background. Not one of my very favourite shots, but not far from it.

This is a very great idea. About the only thing I would suggest is to take two steps to the left and get lower so you are at the girl's level.

would have suggested you remove the red-shorts boy from the shot. sort of kills the dof effect.

I have to say that this is an impressive shot, one that that I have rated higher than any other in this contest. Well Done!!

06/25/2002 12:41:00 PM
this is a nice shot. a good contrast between the big city and the beach life. i know where i live a lot of people come down from the city to go to the local beaches, so this makes sense to me.

What a great shot 10
One very minor nit pick in a perfect world, I would have liked the guy behind her to be standing to the left of the picture. Hes forcing the photo to be slightly out of balance. This type of correction is hard to achieve unless you hired them to be in the picture. (the right place at the right time)
This would hang nicely on a wall congratulations.

that's really cool. I love that city backdrop.
06/24/2002 03:02:00 PM
Get lower and closer to your subject. Don't worry about filling the entire background with that cityscape unless you can get a good subject in your foreground.
06/24/2002 01:09:00 PM
Bravo. I like this a lot.
06/24/2002 12:48:00 PM
Gosh she is cute enough! This is fine shot, action, clear, sharp, and DOF. Nice work. Kee

Caught in a very natural moment. Good balance of land, skay and colors.
06/24/2002 09:22:00 AM
I like how the boarders body curved with the line of the water. A little fuzzy.
06/24/2002 04:10:00 AM
That is SO much fun.. ah memories.. Good pic! 10

The guy in the center back is somewhat distracting
