A very nice image of the surfer. As the surfer is the subject ,I would crop some off each side and some off the bottom. I put it through Photoshop Denoise and sharpen. As the sky and water are very close to each other, I went into PS Sky Replacement and added a light sky with some clouds. This is what I came up with. You did a very nice job, capturing this image.   Posted: 10/07/2021 16:38:48

I like your work on the sky replacement. I use to do replacement manually, the main issuses is the boundary. It is very difficult to have a clean boundary. Great efforts!   Posted: 10/20/2021 15:19:26

I love this image. I did crop it which made the surfer more visible. However, I find the sharpening that Stu did is too much. The waves exhibit too much grain   Posted: 10/10/2021 14:10:18

When I look at this image I am captivated by the violent strength of the wave and the surfer climbing up to the top of it. My only suggestion would be to crop a bit from the bottom to enhance both.   Posted: 10/11/2021 15:56:41

All the action in this great shot is in the middle so I thought a letter box crop might work with the surfer further over to the right and a little kick of exposure and a bit of exposure blending.
