Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the free study

That looks a very challenging environment with all those rocks, your viewpoint makes that element of it really work, as opposed to an open sea image of two surfers you get a sense of the danger of their surroundings. Your timing is good with both surfers captured in action and appearing to be in control. The spray off the surf adds to the overall feel you can hear the noise and smell the brine in the air. A very dynamic shot that has been well executed. You could argue that the contrast and brightness could have been raised but I prefer it the way it is it makes the important parts of the image, the surfers and spray stand out more effectively

Well done and, thank you for your entry.

That is an AMAZING SHOT! I don't think I've seen anything like this point of view before, such vast contrasts. Has to be right up there on the front page for sure!

Looks more like they're in hell, and a cold one at that. This is a fantastic capture.

Post processing kept this from being an 8 or 9 for me. It's not quite sharp enough and colors should pop.
