greetings from the critique club!

while i appreciate the capture in the moment, i think the most distracting part of this image is the crashing wave in the background. it really takes away from what is going on in the foreground.

the title is funny and apt.

i think if this had been shot from a different angle so there wasn't such a busy background it would have had more impact for the viewer.

good luck!
