I think you captured this scene at a perfect moment in time. The water, smooth in one spot but, otherwise, turbid, the surfer's eyes seeming to be looking directly at your lens, all make for a really good image. You didn't share you post processing with us, but the monochrome is also very good.   Posted: 06/08/2020 11:10:50

Sorry Bill, thanks for the comments, I used Nik Silver Pro 2 to convert it to mono.   Posted: 06/08/2020 22:03:10

We don't have ocean surfing, but do surf on the Aegean Sea only. This is a well-captured moment David and his facial expression says a lot about self-confidency. Sharp enough. Does curved thumb mean something on surfing culture?   Posted: 06/09/2020 09:18:57

My question is; what happen next? but he seems to have full control of the situation. It is very dynamic scene. The surfer stands well out from the surroundings. Definately better in B&W.   Posted: 06/09/2020 14:54:31

Arne the surfer was trying to do a 180 deg turn and surf backwards for a small time, to me this was best image of the sequence   Posted: 06/10/2020 00:50:51

Great image, David.
You captured "the moment". I like the way splash the wave and texture of wear.
My preference is to have brighter tone on splash of wave, which would pop up and jump into my eyes.
But well done!   Posted: 06/14/2020 23:31:04

What a fantastic shot. Not a bit of obscuring spray between you and your subject.   Posted: 06/17/2020 10:04:43

Like this great shot.
It can be better if locally adjust the brightness and contrast. Let the subject jump out of the background.   Posted: 06/22/2020 18:50:49

Love the great capture and monochrome conversion.
He is a man who know what he is doing and in great control.
I feel that the monochrome version draw more attentions to his eyes and made the story more alive.   Posted: 06/23/2020 10:08:21
