I personally really like result of this image. I was worried about the low light and having to use an ISO setting that can produce unwanted noise but it seems ok. My usual AV setting was producing a too over exposed shot so I quickly changed to full manual, do a 3 shot burst and get the shot I wanted. I set myself up where the background is interesting and waited for a rower to pass. I had to wait for almost an hour so I was nervous about getting the shot before it got too dark. I feel I got a decisive moment of a candid shot with a style of Henri's result but Iím sure the voters will let me know.

This is probably not that interesting for most but I feel this should finish in the high 5's.

Quantum kayak...I'm guessing an entry from somewhere in Oz.

I like how you captured that splashing water.

Nice contrast of the kayak and the person against the backdrop - and nice catch of the water off the paddle. Not exactly what I'd consider an HCB-esque shot, though I'm not an expert at it either.
