I windy day at the beach in Malibu. The tide was low, so the surfers could walk out a ways in waist deep water. I anticipate people having issues with the amount of sky, but I sort of liked how this crop gave a different view and helped make the surfers look very small. It's a big blue world! :)

Something quirky about having the two surfers there. One would have been nice, but the two make this shot. Also, excellent use of negative space.

A lot of empty space with little feature above the surfers to look at IMO

Nice. But, it's a bit soft and the horizon is slanted.
