Looks like a swim team. People in motion leads me to think that you didn't use multiple exposures for HDR. Image seems to have a yellow hue/cast. Tighter crop removing some of the foreground would be better.

Interesting shot, but the harsh yellow color cast and shadowed boarder really take away from the photo itself.

I like the image, however, the color cas doesn't make it appealing to me. Sorry.

Cool picture, but HDR?

I'm not crazy about the yellow tone on this

There's too much empty space here. I think the people should take up more of the image. The color cast seems off to me as well.

I like the composition a great deal, but do not care for the yellowish tint.

Hmm, the border on this picture deserves some witty, stinging rebuke but this challenge has pretty much drained me at this point.

The photo itself... Not sure where everyone turning yellow is a component of high dynamic range. Composition is a bit rough. The sand is pea green.

Alright I guess I had some left in me after all. Good luck.

The sand and legs are too yellow IMO.

The color of the sand (and the fact that there is so much of it - very yellow) takes away from the very neat image of the swimmers.

Well, I don't know a whole lot about what makes a great HDR photo -- but I do think this is very cool! And it shows a great range of light, shadows and color, so I think it's very good! I like the subject matter too It's interesting! Something about it reminds me of a cool greeting card! Great job.

Personally, I like the drop shadow effect on some shots but I think most DPCers will cut you way down for it as being gimmicky. Kind of like when the page curl thing was big a few years back.
I also think the color balance of off a bit towards too much yellow.
One or two adults trying to herd almost 25 kids... That's a three ring circus, not just a carnival :-)

Is this HDR? I didn't know it could be done with moving subjects. I have a lot to learn.
