I'm usually not much for black and white but the action and the spray of the wave really makes this a cool image! Wish I had been around to vote, I would give it a high score!

the sky does not help this photo instead it distracts IMO, still you managed to capture some nice action, 6

Love that blown spray. The surfer gives some perspective on the size of the waves.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting flow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 01:07:07 PM
toning really helps this image, makes what was looking like a blah sky and element rather than a distraction
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The surfer is vital to making this shot interesting. The capturing of the effect of the wind on the surf is spectacular.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

so jealous of the capture of the sweet action at the right moment 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:39:51 PM
I really like this and I think the surfer being so small is really effective at showing the vastness of the water
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:16:00 PM
Black and white just works so well with this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:59:59 PM
unusual to see a surfing picture in b&w but it works here, especially with the water that's splashing up, the border works well here too
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The lone surfer....I need to find this place! Nice shot. Great swell!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Feels cold. Capturing the wind blown spray adds a lot of drama to this.

Wonderfull shot!

03/12/2009 04:26:09 AM
very well captured. can imagine a blue toning here. the borders are OK, had made them bolder to acjieve a 3:2 aspect ratio, though

Love the crop and the silhoutte of the surfer

Nice black-and-white the capture of mist of the waves
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:31:56 PM
I'm a sucker for a silhouette. The single surfer against the ocean's spray is nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:09:42 PM
Oh my! What a stunning capture showing the power and majesty of the waves and the adventurous spirit of those who dare to ride them! Great action shot. Love the spray of water that is coming up as the waves crash over and break. The surfer adds visual interest but also shows us the sense of scale. I like the widescreen presentation of the image for it also gives the sense of size as we drink in the sweeping landscape of this beach.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:49:18 PM
Nice wave! Maybe capturing a natural footer (to have him facing the wave) and including more of the barrel would improve.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:01:01 PM
Interesting landscape composition. I like the anonymity implied. Power and solitude.
