Think I would have cropped this tighter, colors seem washed out.

you got the right idea, but it needs some work. the image is too muted, indicating that a bit more post-processing is in order. with the sky so flat, a gradient map would have really helped. it also looks as though it could be a bit sharper. i like the vertical shot, but feel the subject is just a bit too centered.

after the challenge, you might consider asking bear and/or others for some more concrete post-processing help and suggestions.

Great capture. The lighting is a bit too grey. I live in New England so I know what the sky and sea can change to without any notice. Good luck...

Uh-oh. Looking a bit pixelated. Sizing issue perhaps? ;^) Anyway, besides that - the surfer(?) is caught in an interesting pose. Would like to see it a little closer in. The colors in this are kind of...drab? Best of luck to you.
