Interesting perspective - he's practically lost in the wave, giving us a good sense of size. I'm curious to see what this is like in color as well, though perhaps the effect would be lost there.

Too far from the action. Zoom in more.

I think this may have worked better in color, but I could be wrong.

Slightly earlier or maybe later with more of the surfer and maybe a bit more contrast between the surf and the water

Body is too hidden in the foam to give much punch to this dynamic sport. Greyscale was a good choice.

I love the tone and the concept of the photo. The wide crop is nice. I wish that the timing was a bit different so that your subject was more visible.

Odd, looks like a head being washed up on the shore.

Great contrast and exposure though. Perfect shutter time.

I like this pic.

Subject matter too small and too hidden. Would look great with a very tight crop around the surfer

I think it would have looked better in color....(?) maybe?

Still divided as to if i really like it or not! It's certainly interesting and creative and that seems to be lacking in this challenge - So yes I like it!
