Nice picture... caught the hand gesture and all... that really helps tie the shot in to the topic. I would have cropped it a little tighter so as not to get the background along the top of the shot but it doesn't take much away from the composure I dont think. Nice job.

Nice crop on this. Looks like a lot of fun!

Nice Action shot. The exposure is a little too dark in the shadows. It looks like this was taken with a high sun, making it tough to get the exposure right. I'm guessing that if you lightened it up, the water would look washed out. Try a tighter crop. The water action behind the boat will still be there, and you'll be able to bump up the exposure to see more detail in the shadow.

a little bit faster shutter speed and a touch wider and this shot would be epic
