reminds me of my childhood in San Diego. Never wanting to leave the beach until there was no light left to navigate the waters by. Excellent photo!

I like the colours in this, I would have moved slightly to the left to crop out the boat? in the distance and get the surfboard fully in the frame (but I'm picky!)

This is good Zen, IMO the surfer should be in line with the headland in the back ground,like the colors,and story....8

I feel he has been cropped to much

he looks too close to the border, would be great if he was positioned a little further from the border of the frame.

A little too much movement in the ocean to truly be a quiet photo. Very pretty, however.
