    I like the shot and the subject matter. THe only thing is that the surfer is really dark.

    I like the fact that hes dark.
    I love this shot Chase..

    Maybe its because he's a;most a silhouette but not because of the colour in his boardies.

    I think its a fabulous shot.

    The only thing I dont like about it is the almost blown out highlights. But mother nature can be a biatch sometimes. Still a good shot Chase.

    Heh, the dark surfer is what makes this pic for me. since I can't identify him it could be anyone, even me.

    What? It could happen! :roll:

    Very nice! I really like the fact that he is silhouetted. With that and the shimmering of the water, it's a powerful pic. A+ to our chief! :lol:

    I was shooting from the pier almost right overhead as he was coming towards me. It was taking at Huntington Beach, CA.

    Thanks for the comments everyone :)

    Now that is a capture! I love the "spray", for lack of a better word (maybe rooster tail?). To me all the elements seem right on. The photo may have been stronger if the subject was in the tuck position.

    I must say that I have basically only seen photos of surfers. I know nothing of the sport. If my last remark is outrageous let me know.

    That's a great picture you have there Chase. All of that water splashing does it for me. You also have a nice angle for this picture.
