    Congrats on your high finish! Please post the uncropped original in the outtakes. I was just wondering how much cropping you had to do here.

    Congratulations on 3rd place. It's not easy to catch these guys on the fly.

    Nice shot. It must have been taken from a distance? Lack of sharpness was distracting to me.

    Good action shot of the cutback. I take a lot of surf pics, but I am kind of old school, I really like to see big, tubing waves. Being a lifelong surfer, it's not only the person surfing, but the wave also is the star. Your pic the surfer is doing a nice turn, but the wave, just doesn't do it for me. I like to see more of the wave.

    Very nice composition, and lots of detail with the light on the board and the spray

    Maybe I would have added more brightness with histogram, but an excellent picture anyway. My first choice.

    Great capture. Just a little too much grain and the camera is struggling with the red tint, a Panasonic problem. Hope you used a tripod. Just a little more sharp would be great.

    Nice action - like the surfer's pose and the curve of the board wake. Might want to crop some off the right so he isn't so central.

    Marvelous capture. Love the "S" shape of the surfer as well as the sense of motion. High in my TT's.
