Oh, this is SO GOOD! I'm surprised this one didn't get you your first ribbon :)

His expression is priceless. I would've loved to see a different cropping, like for example, the division of the water and the trees a lot lower, showing less water and him at the bottom of the picture. Great score from me nevertheless.

Wonderful take on the challenge. And well executed, as well. Love the fast shutter and stopped motion capture of the water.

The guy's expression is priceless. Did he crash?

The picture is really exceptional, but what about the request "Actual thread should not be used" ?

Ok, this is not one of those over the top edited shots and certainly not a "stock photo" that is so much loved in here but, to me, this really captured the essence of the challenge and was a real "catch" to have gotten! 9

Do you know what I like about this photo. There is very minimal editing and it's still very beautiful.

Yikes - this is a refreshing scene given our current weather here :-)

a bit faster shutter speed and this would be awesome! just a tad blurry, but still a very exciting photo
