Congrats on the great finish, Ernie. It's a beautiful capture and the setting sun makes it even more interesting.

Excellent shot, great timing , cool splash with a nice sunset to boot. Suits the challenge to a T. Did not vote, comment only

What a great opportunist shot. However, I'd like to know what the out of focus line is at the back of the head. For me, it slightly spoils a really good photo. I still think it's worth 8 though.

Ernie. Set the camera down and back away very, very slowly. :-)8

Great shot. All the elements are in there.

Great capture of motion, the figure is very dark but it's sunset so I realise you couldn't really help that.

Good action shot. Burned out stripe on the water and the rope or whatever that out of focus line is on the left aren't very appealing. Might have dialed down the exposure and just let the guy go silhouette. Not voting, just commenting. Good luck.

What is the odd vertical streak to the left of his head??

Love it! The fact that you did this at sunrise/set really gives this a unique look.
