Great potential. It is harsh lighting as already noted. Composition-wise, I have a few quibbles. The single person off to the right does not seem to be a part of the committee and should be cropped, IMO. Also, the horizon is very near the center in the frame. You don't always need to follow the rule of thirds, but here is a case where it would be better. To crop some of the foreground water would be to bring the boat and committee closer to the viewer. Also, adding a layer to tweak the blue and giving a bit more sky to the whole thing would enhance the picture.

A wonderful vision to see this scene for what it can be and attempt to capture it. I think you have done a pretty good job here of telling the story, but I wonder if your distance from the scene makes it seem more a 'glance' than 'deep look'. These type shots are likely to score poorly, although they are a joy to linger over and try to find the hidden stories.

on the technical side, i think ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Jagar hit it with the harshness of the light (the wave is blown out).
