Lump me in there. :) It is a great image, but not what I would consider his environment unless he is Aquaman. :)

The image is just stunning, I love it. I just checked out your portfolio - there are some great portraits in there. My only problem was I felt this was a bit of a stretch for the environmental portrait - I couldn't link the headphones to the background at all. I didn't drop my score too much though, without the headphones would have been on topic, but not as strong an image... made me think hard about what to vote!

If anything the headphones gave the image it a wonderfully abstract feel... a 10 from me in "outdoor portraits" for sure.

Revitalizing ... different. The sum of the parts; the sun, the water, the reflection all complete this pure environment and human form. The darker sky at the top and the dark water at the bottom make a natural border.

I am dying to know how you achieved this shot, the water is so black and beautiful. Can't wait for the challenge results. You got a perfect 10 from me. Well done.

This one has a lot of wow to it. It could be a great CD cover.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like your photo. It feels like it should be an advertisement for the headphone or some sort of music. Good luck.

Good use of light

I'm having a hard time with this - I don't see the Environmental Port connection. If it were in the Self Port I'd vote a 10. I'm going to have to ponder this some more ... I shall return.

Alright - I'm back ... had you lied to me with the title and said "The Open Water Swimmer" or something like that I'd have gone for it. As it stands I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt: 10.

Composition, lighting, reflections, use of the sun: all very very good.

Great composition like the POV close to the water and the reflection in the water. Into the sun and using the flash is really working here to.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2006 11:26:49 PM
The tone of skin and water is exceptional. Perfect use of flash. Technically stunning. You could teach all of us alot about flash.

Beautiful photo and I must admitt that I think it comes from Iceland because it is so perfect ;) But you don't just jumb into the see here in Iceland so I am not sure. Could be a ad or cover on a CD. Perfect photo that deserves 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2006 01:36:13 PM

I had to think of this one before commenting. I do like it. Very surreal sense to it. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2006 10:09:43 AM
Wow! The lighting, clarity, texture, color, everything is so amazing. It's like a realistic 3d image. I could just reach out and touch it. Truly amazingly cool. If only I could give an 11!
