Thanks to my kiteboarding model, Adam Rodriquez, and the conditions for the shoot which were near perfect. I think we were both a bit anxious as I kept directing Adam to "come closer" with each pass.

Love that you caught him at a moment where he is looking at you.

I would like to have seen this from a little further away, not such a tight crop. Right now I think it's just too much. Zooming in with a powerful lens just because we have the power isn't always the best thing. Other than that, it's a beautifully sharp photo

Just a tad to tight with the crop i guess you know that good shooting with the action great shoot

Great shot. Maybe just a little too closely cropped (or captured).

Holy smokes this is excellent.

my opinion is that since the tip of his head and hand are cut off, the bottom should be cut off so that part of the board and his had are cut off....I think it would be more balanced

Nice point of view on the photograph and beautiful action shot. Love the intensity in his eyes. 9

Oh boy! The only reason this is not getting a 10 from me is because of the cropped head. Everything else is just perfect... may be a little zooming out would have helped pull in the splash more. 8/10.
