    Eyes open would be my preference but there is everything else I like so squeaks in at number 10 ahead of some really good images.

    Well succeeded in hard conditions. Good sharpness and contrasts. In my favorites.

    Thanks all for your comments. I found this venue by accident, and i've had real fun trying to get shots of the British Olympic team training, and rafts almost flipping over...

Detail/ sharpness: possibly because this is a crop of a zoomed image, which i'd underexposed significantly to keep the highlights? Or maybe i made a mistake in post-processing. Going for a slightly tighter crop would have made it worse.

SteveBee/ Aoc46 : I really like the fact she has her eyes closed against the spray - and is half covered by that water - the two of them add up to the same thing for me, which is to show the drama of the scene.

    On one hand, it looks challenging - then I noticed the rider was relaxed enough to nod off :-) Fun sport - well captured.

    Better him than me! That water is sure turbulent, and you've captured its energy really well. Given the high speed, I'm surprised there isn't more detail.

    Well caught. I love the splash of colour in the middle of the splashing water. Good catch.

    Good action well-shot, but wish the boater weren't so much hidden by the water. Great energy in the waves.

    I would like a tighter shot of the kayaker and his/her facial expression. In this shot unfortunately the eyes are closed.

    A little more detail and sharpness would have made this really nice.
