Great barefooting shot. Love how his hand is skimming the water as well.

8 - Good capture. Not sure what, but needs 'tweaking' - whether it be a variation in composition, colors or even toning/b&w conversion, crop, not sure. Just think there is more potential 'somehow' with such a unique capture, in my opinion. I realize however the restrictions with basic editing.

What a cool shot! Love the capture of all the water, but just can't figure out the flat water. Very calm day?

This is one of the photos in this challenge dropped my jaw. This photo should win something else than a virtual ribbon. 10 + for this, and keep up the good work, whoever you are ;)

Cool! Nice side lighting. It'd be great if there was a little less shadow on his face but I realize you can't really pose him exactly. I like that this is a unique take on most waterskiing/wakeboarding type photos.

I like this alot, however, I would have liked a different crop. It appears that you were trying to make the hand on the flat water as the focal point but I would not agree with that for 2 reasons: 1) The lighting does not support it with the hand in shadows and 2) the action of the spray coming off the foot is the real grabber. The hand on the smooth water is gravy not the main course. 8

Nicely frozen in time and space. I imagine one could do some damage to a pinky in such situations. 7.
