Great photo! It's a shame that the surfer isn't in better focus, but still a wonderful pic with great content and color.

It's so sad that the photo is so unsharp. If one could make out more details on the surfer it would be a terrific shot.

Overall poor quality - good idea and attempt at a catch!

Nice action shot! Great subject.

Too much ground. I would prefer a closer shot. Of more of the primary subject. Seems to be a lot of wasted space here at the bottom and around the sides. Your real subject is right there in the middle. Zoom in.
