Increased contrast of the image would be wonderful. You really needed to somehow be closer to the subject with a wider lens to capture the background and the surfer in clear view.

looks a bit bright and hazy to me, and the detail on the surfer is not what I might expect on a magazine cover.

Good capture. Too bad the surfer isn't clear enough. Good composition though.

Ooooh. Good shot and a fine cover. I don't know if it's the crop or the camera, but I'd really like to see more detail.

Great action, nice colors and composition. This shot meets the challenge - it's vertical and has space at the top that could be blended with type without spoiling the photo's impact.

looks cold! i see too much noise though - maybe just the mist. i think a tighter zoom/crop would look a little better too. good luck!

Good capture but needs to be sharper. Colours are a lttle washed out, not meant to be a pun.

Nice action shot. I like the crop on this - keeping the rocks and spray in really adds to the drama of this photo. Wish the surfer was a bit sharper.

POV is wonderful here. You feel like your in the water with him. Focus is a little soft, but neat shot.

Nice image, but seems a bit under-exposed.

Very nice action capture, seems out of focus.

Those rocks looks scarey, nice shot.

This appears to be overly zoomed (cropped) or overly processed. I'm leaning on the zoom part. Nice compositon, but the detail is lost or exagerated...
