Love this photo and I think it is an excellent use of HDR. Reminds me of growing up in San Diego and makes me realize how much I miss the beach.

It looks really great, it just seems a little over saturated. 8

I like this one a lot! I'd like it more if the guy's face were more clearly in focus. This is in my top 3 picks.

Lovely colors, demonstration of HDR, could be a poster for surfer gear. Wish for some/more fill on the face of the surfer, but I like it a lot as is.

Good use of HDR and a good subject, but the colors are pretty garish. Also some vignetting along the bottom. If you put it there, fine, but IMNSHO it doesn't add much.

Hey, it's the Boo! Cool shot! Looks more like a Malibu evening though. :D No matter, I'm giving it a 10.

very nice use of HDR. I like the contrast of the building on the sunset sky!

Really nice job with the HDR to bring out the details in the foreground while highlighting the sunset - I love the colors. Was it hard to get the surfer to hold the board long enough for the multiple exposures?

Sand like snow, sky like fire. Too bad the sea was flat...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

would have been in the top 5 if the surfer didn't look so out of place the colors are just to far off but still a great photo.

This is really nice, colors and use of hdr are very nice. You must have seen the challenge topic, gotten your idea right away and set your alarm! A sunrise shot in a 24hr challenge is impressive!

gorgeous scene/composition, but the lower half's processing looks plastic on my calibrated monitor.

Nice capture - benefit of getting out of bed early!

I love malibu pier!

Excellent, this puts a whole new flavour on the surf photo. The composition very strong and dynamic. The colors are very intense and beautiful. In the sun area the colors do come borderline close to dividing attention too much from the surfer. Definitely my top pick of this challenge, great job!

Nice shot for sure, contrast is abit extreme though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 10:16:30 AM
This is very striking! And who hasn't shot enough photos of the sun, only to get everything else silhouetted to know that this is an excellent representation of HDR! Fantastic job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I can see this photo in the top 5. I love the coloring and the great use of HDR to get it there. Saturation is just about right and nice composition with details taken care of. this is a 9 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Top 3 for sure. The human factor takes it to the top.

The surfer looks suspended in air in this shot...amazing scenery, well done

Is this from a single raw file exposed multiple times or multiple files?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 12:42:44 AM
Beautiful range, lovely colors... not overdone! One of my top picks! Good luck!
