The prow of the boat slicing through the water... I held my camera upside down as I leaned out on the front of the boat. The sun already had set in front of the boat.

Slicing describes this perfectly - the water looks so calm until the boat cuts through it. The water really creates some nice contrast here. Thanks for sharing how you "got the shot".

VERY cool shot - I love the bits of light dancing on the cut water. And a great perspective for this.

Amazing how you managed to get the spray so sharp.

Very interesting! The water spray is so sharp....it almost looks like sparkles from fireworks.

What a unique perspective! I like the sheen and motion of the water as it comes off the bow.

The water break creates a very nice contrast in BW and sense of motion. Makes me wanna be on that boat going to wherever...
