First Impression: Words can not explain how I initially felt about this photo... it literally took my breath away.

Composition: Awesome composition. The only thing I can complain is that the man looks like he is leaning forward instead of standing up strait. Also, there is some spots on the rocks below the waves, I wish that it was all black instead of seeing a little bit of the rock's texture. Other than that, the composition is absolutely perfect.

Subject:
To me, there really isn't any specific subject... the whole image tells a story.

Creativity:
I can tell you put a lot of thought into this photo. I love how you put the woody on the man's shoulder.

Improvements: Besides the few things I mentioned in the composition portion, this photo needs NO improvements.

My Thoughts: Wow... This is an amazing photo. The photo tells a story and casts a beautiful seen. I almost feel like I am there watching the sunset. I can hear and smell the sea. I can also feel the wind. The photo also also reaches me at an emotional level as well. I feel calm and collected.

Overall, this photo should have received first place in my opinion. You are a great photographers and this photo was so well done that I feel that I am not qualified to critique it.

I hope my critique has been helpful.

Cheers,
Ron

Love the silhouettes o the rocks and light, very effective, and a strong enough shot that Art would work just as well even without the gleeful woody! 8
