Nice action in #1 and #3 but way underexposed. You need to expose for faces, the water in the background will be blown out but that's just the way it is, or you could use flash to put light on the faces. #3 looks like you might have intended the horizon to be crooked (although I personally don't like it) but #2 is crooked also just a bit.

I agree that they are cool shots but without faces and definition on the people that are the subjects, they lose a lot of their relevance. Cool angles.

IMO they are WAY over-processed. Way too much saturation, my eye is immediately drawn to the pier in the background on pic 2, which it shouldn't do. Definitely expose for his face, it seems like all of your pictures are of the background and a guy just happened to get in the way.
