Shot at Matanzas inlet on a wonderfully windy day. There were 13 kite surfers in the water at once so shooting was wonderful. This is straight out of the camera with a crop, some noise reduction, sharpen, etc. I had so many, it was tough to choose, but I liked the atheletic look in this shot. Others have very cool expressions as he sooooooooooooo knew I was shooting -- HAM!! lol

"Hang Time" is a nice addition to the Square Crop challenge. 57 out of 364 isn't too bad is such a large challenge. The shot grabs viewers because we are looking at something a lot of us probably haven't seen before.

The image is very nice and grabs attention with the action shot. The shot looks very nice and clean. I think capturing the water droplets really enhances the shot and makes it look really since we cannot see the water. The only reason I don't think the image score higher is because people were really looking for the nice full frame. The border is nice on this piece, it really makes the image feel complete. I am glad you didn't choose to go with a bigger border. Overall this is an excellent action shot.

Well good try kiddo! Not enough to pull through though :P

Seriously, I gave this image an 8 because I know how hard it is to be able to capture something like this. This requires both technicals and creativity in framing the subject. I'm kinda bummed though that there were lots of images such as this that scored lower than what I had initially hoped.

You have one fave so that's a plus in itself ;)

Nice action shot. Good dynamics. Great focus. A bit too sharp (board and sandle edges) for my taste. Easy does it on unsharp mask.
