This got a high score from me. I really love the painterly quality and admired the risk you took to enter an "abstract" for the challenge. I think it might be a stronger image with some of the top lopped off, but what do I know? Cheers and best to you,

Such a beautiful study of a simple subject. A perfect balance of forces ... light, movement, tone, form: it's simpatico in every way. 9.

8 - Like the colors and movement. Nicely done to not get any blown areas too.

the curved lines of the wave and how they capture both the golds, whites and darks together is very good - but i am not crazy about a complete lack of sharpness here

i love the softness you hve here, the crashing wave almost makes it feel like it would be silk against you. great gold tones, the whites compliment outstandingly, well done

Awesome motion blur and colors. I'm loving this yin/yangy wave... Very artistic.

Beautiful image - the sort of thing I love to take and you've captured some wonderful colours. The only things that are unsettling me are the level of distraction the white water creates, and it's central position. To me the real quality part of this picture is on the right hand side, especially the upper half, I've tried doing a simple crop with my hands on the screen and it really transforms it. However that's totally subjective, it's your image and I bet you love it just as it is, and rightly so :)

Lovely image captured at the perfect shutter speed to give the image more feeling. The only downside is that its hard to tell the size of the wave but I suppose that doesn’t matter just makes the viewer more curious.

Get this 1x stuff outta here! ;) Just kidding. Actually I like your wave stuff, although I wouldn't consider this one to be the best.
