I know - too much NI, but it was high ISO and very noisy. I love the cloud of water he created, made it perfect for this challenge.

I like the focus and the softened water. Great spray. 8

A sound shot over-smoothed by noise reduction software. Don't be afraid of some texture - it's OK - really!

I'd prefer to see the bike right of frame with more wake though.

nice shot but what's that pink little dooey between his legs.

Could you not think of anything better for the title? Wonderful shot though!

Nice shot here, plenty of action. Could use a little more contrast to get the guy and his jet ski to jump out from that wall of water. Well composed and a rare instance of a border that doesn't bother my eyes. Nice photo, good work. 5.

If he was paddling, he would not be quite as out of shape as he looks. Nicely frozen action and good focus there. 7.
