What in God's name is that shadow???!!!! It looks like she's about to be eaten by a giant spider!!!! A lovely photograph tho, like the PoV.

1 - DMC - No discernible creativity or effort here for the challenge. Nothing 'sporty' about this at all.

Very nice composition. I like the shadow of the palm tree without seeing the tree. How about a 7 for creativity? :)

I like the reflection of the palm tree. The shot seems more relaxing than sport. Still very nice.

Is this a sport? or just a girl with a hot body? ;)

Quite a fun shot. It looks like the woman is swimming towards a gigantic squid just ready to eat her. ;)

I LOVE this image. What an amazing catch. It all works well for me, particularly the bathing cap. Well done!

interesting take on the challenge...

probably would have done better if she was nekkid, or if there was a shark chasing her.

i love the composition and the basic idea, and hope you aren't getting beaten up too badly. if you're not happy with how this is scoring, you might want to check out this thread. good luck!

I think I would like to see her angled more in the frame, so there's a greater angle to the implied line great shot, how did you get up there? almost looks like your paragliding or something

The reflection of the palm tree makes this shot very special..
