Wooooo!!! Yes, this is certainly a very wonderful surprise. Thanks to everyone for their wonderful comments. I appreciate your votes and am happy to have taken a picture that captured your interest. It was a sticky week as I watched the voting proceeding.

How you ask? Water Housing. I take hundreds of shots with this camera (while I'm surfing) hoping for a chance to get something worth while. If you like to view a few more images visit my gallery at pbase...

Yes, it is an objectional form of transportation but the challenge is also my "idea of transportation". The effect for this image is Photoshop Channel Mixer, which was applied to the entire image and no layers. I don't recall the RGB values.

I am truely honored to have received my first ribbon regardless of the color.

Aloha and Mahalo's,
Joem

Congratulations! Great to see someone in Hawaii get the BLUE RIBBON! A surf board is certainly transportation. Anyone who had a long paddle in the morning and surfed all day will know it is transportation when they catch their last wave and ride it to shore rather than paddling. Awesome photo! Looks like Kewalos or Point Panic?

Hey, that's a very nice result indeed for such "untypical" transportation :-) Congrats on your ribbon for this "you had to be there" shot!

What he said. Rather amazing accomplishment to enter something completely DNMC yet still ribbon. Says alot about the appeal of this photo with voters.

10 - My favorite for this challenge.

Only suggestion would be to level the horizon which I believe would have made the wave appear taller.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2006 11:29:36 AM
OMG, one of the best! Giving you a full rate!

wow, now this is nice... and i suppose it's a form of transportation, bug you're hugging the line... 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2006 09:13:53 AM
This is a phenomenal photo, but isn't surfing really a sport more than a form of transportation?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2006 08:55:49 AM
I like how you use differend angle to capture serfing...that big wave makes it real interesting and then ofcourse beautiful sunset.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2006 05:33:45 PM
Original - love the emphasis on the wave!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2006 04:02:49 PM
Wow, awesome capture! My favorite forms of transportation too. The warm colors are terrific, and they fit the subject nicely. The surfer silhouetted against the setting sun with the sun reflecting on the wave... just super! A big 10 from me.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2006 08:51:59 PM
Stunning colors...vibrant and alive. I love the definition in the wave. Sky is awesome. The only thing that I can see is a slight 1 degree rotation to the right to get your horizon perfectly straight. I would hang this on my wall.

I love the water and surfer, the sky seems a bit unnatural to me ... a bit grainy and over processed ... overall, very nice job ... 8
