Yeah well I gave it an 8 and I found it a well executed challenge matching entry. I cannot for the life of me explain anything lower than a 5.

Won't get in to the debate about how well it fitted the challenge, but it sure is a nice image Anita. :)

5 from me, doesnt look like the "tilt shidt effect" looks like a lens baby or iphone app etc

the massive white border? why? if i want to see white i can look at an A4 sheet of paper 10% of your image is given over to it

yeah its a surfer cresting a wave, but its far away and no detail. the blur effect steals from the sky and the waves, doesnt grab me or draw me in , meh 5 next image.....

also for this challenge ppl dont work well i feel, and slightly raised viewpoint like you are looking down onto the model this is level and at eye line.

The motion of the waves emphasize the drama. Very nice action shot.
