The Photographer's Eye

One of my favorite books on composition. Worth a trip to the library or bookstore.

Hi from the C Club,

I gave this a 9 when i voted. I though it was a brilliant photograph.

I love the fact that you haven't got some bikini clad model doing this, this is what makes this shot so special.

The only thing that I can see is the banding in the sky which is easily remedied in Advance.

I wish I could make this a longer critique, but what can I say when faced with this shot. Stunning!

Every BW beach/water shot you submit does this, Ben. You need to do it every time. :) CONGRATS, my friend!

If you ever figure out a way around that banding in sky, please let me know. It's a result of the 8 bit depth of JPEG, so it does not get held against the shot, which is well done. Nice dynamic angle and great rush of the water.
