oh man, this would be so much better if that water speck or whatever it is wasn't right on her face. Try burning it perhaps.... AWESOME shot tho!

I love the photo. The only distraction is the flare on her face.

There are so many of this type of shot on DPC but what makes this unique to me is taking it from the water level. Nice job. 8

I really like the perspective on this photo, but I think the glare spots on the girl's silhouette are really distracting.

Great angle and silhouette, however looks like you have water spots (understandible) or light spots on the subject which is too bad. It would have been nice to seen a slightly different angle/cropping with the subject on the right third of the image with more open water to her left. Good Luck. 5.

Wow, amazing, great depth of field, great low point of view, amazing contract between the water/girl/sky. Very very well don!

This is a very emotive capture to me - I like how her face seems to be in a bit of lens flare (don't know if that's the case or if it's processing, but I like it); I love that bit of water coming off her hand. The golden light really adds nicely to the simple pleasure aspect of this nicely.

Excellent. My favorite thus far, to bad about the flare obscuring her face. 8

Cool shot, I love that we really can't tell where the sky ends and water starts. Nice coloring.

high impact due to contrast, color and silhouette against this dramatic sky

Amazing picture. I wish you edited out the sun spot on her face, still a 7.

I like this image very much - so happy, summery, and that nice feeling of floating and waiting for that wave... but I would have burned out that lens flare on the girl's head. It's distracting.... 7.
