I really like the contrast, excellent composition - the forground blur is a little distracting - I think it's a 9, 10 w/o the foreground haze

Very nice. Even though they are at a bit of a distance from the viewer and in near-sillouhette, the men have been captured in such a way that their postures, and the storyteller's gesture provide most of the visual clues necessary to tell a visual story and provoke an emotional response in the viewer. The boat, the beach, and the sunset provide the environmental context. Excellent job. My favorite so far.

I don't usually like comments or give them, but since candids are near and dear to my heart, I have decided to comment on every photo in this challenge.

This is ok. A bit too easy to capture though. Not exactly out of a comfort zone nor does it really spark any emotion other than the title which gives it the story it really doesn't have when standing alone. It's a 4 vote from me.

Wonderful catch. Though it's a little hard to see their faces, you can tell the one guy facing the speaker is really interested in what he's hearing. :)
