very cool shot. A bit more post-processing (ie: straighten out the horizon etc) and it could have score much higher I think.

This is one of those photos you could change the tone of the photo with a different title, example suicidal or defiant both bring out different feelings and no change to the photo would be needed. making this a photo with endless possibilities. Though reckless is good, it's not quite as emotionally impacting as another title would have been.

Either way, fun photo as long as your model lived through the shot. Thanks for sharing.

BTW I don't rate on the title, it was just an observation and thought I had when I actually noticed the title.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: The juxtaposition of the sign and the legs makes for a great visual gag - it makes me wonder whether the sign is there for safety reasons. The overall composition is very sound and I like the way the red writing contrasts with the blue sea - reason enough not to take this monochrome.

Critical stuff: The dark blue haloing around the legs - I think you could have cleaned up that part of the image by tweaking that a little.

Overall: An interesting shot with enough story to make me smile.

I like this. Defiance in the face of big red text.
