It loved this shot -- I think it should have a bluebird:

You know what strikes me here? The *detail* on the umbrella :-) Strange but true. Congrats on your red!

I like this for the mood that it evokes. Kind of one where you can see yourself getting lost in the moment and thinking about life. And hoping you don't lose that umbrella :D

The idea behind the Posthumous Ribbon is to encourage you to break the rules, to find new and different ways to express yourself. To free your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come, to laugh at world and at life, not doing what others are expecting you to do, but just following and listening to what's in your heart. DPC itís a wonderful learning place where everyone should be supported on their way to be a photographer. A special attention should be aimed to those working hard with different views and approaches to photography, those not aligned with the mainstream taste and receiving no recognition. Itís our responsibility to support these photographers creating diversity and expressing different visions. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to do it. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to protect your and the otherís freedom of being different. Thanks for taking the time to enter this challenge. Stay wild.

Lovely.

It's one of the images in this challenge that I keep stopping at everytime. It make me curious.

Great visual impact!

Good contrast between the still watcher and the tumelous waves. Bumping up

great wave action capture! Wonderful scene with a brave model. 10

DPC friendly - yet a tad off with the long exposure. Very nice and posthumous-worthy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2010 03:02:57 PM
nice energetic composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting pose. Seems all he's missing is maybe a tophat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this capture. I love the movement of the water against the calm of the person, but at the same time there is a story and one could almost feel that the storm and churning water could be inside that apparently calm person. It's almost as if the elements are reflecting what is inside. Beautiful!

My favorite of the challenge. Beautifully done!

So much action - but the noise in the clouds distracts, but not enough to take away from the photo. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Laughing at the pose. Some type of primal sign of attempted dominance.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2010 04:01:41 AM
Decent photograph, actually a very good photograph, but just a little bit too readily comprehensible for me :)
But I still enjoyed it, thank you. 7.

This one sings to me, the one legged person who is using that umbrella as a cane, keeping their balance in that splashy wind. I like this photo because I can imagine myself there, and because it just looks very beautiful. (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/27/2010 11:41:43 PM
10! Nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/27/2010 11:28:19 PM
It certainly appears that this gentleman will get drenched. An umbrella in hand tells me he is indifferent to what mother nature has to say. Or, this is a rouge wave that caught him by surprise! We done on the timing of the capture. I love the b&w too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/27/2010 10:08:14 PM
I get it. Umbrellas don't work well in the wind. Love the image - the tonal range - man against nature.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/27/2010 04:15:19 PM
Outstanding. Truly wonderful photo. The energy, the lack of consequence. Awesome.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

"wind" is not the first word that comes to my mind, but a very nice image, regardless!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this, lots of drama. Nice stark contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very nice

This photo completely captures my attention. I have stared at it for over 10 minutes already. I feel hypnotized.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/26/2010 12:59:38 PM
I,ll give it 8 and I score real low.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/26/2010 04:25:29 AM
Great job. Good choice of b/w. Dramatic. 8

Incongruous and marvelous. There is so much power in this image, in the explosion of the ocean, in the threatening sky on the horizon, in the man's relaxed and Quixotic stance with his umbrella in the face of it all. Sensational.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/26/2010 12:28:48 AM
Ribbon. 10. Great shot.
