May everyone at DPC share in your honesty. I am sad to see you lose out on fourth place, but the image is stunning nonetheless. Keep up the good work!

Congratulations on 4th place - this image could easily have been on the front page. It's so smooth and creamy, yet strong. Love it.

the white of waves bring out a nice contrast. perhaps a lesser exposure could have made the darker parts darker :)

I like the way you waited for the wave to come up through the fence, leaving the foamy surf to contrast with the dark tones of the fence and sand.
