      The dedfender might gain my vote with a larger version. The general effect seems nice, but I can't appricate details.
      Here, I like your angle, the really thin line of sky, the B&W density, and the diagonal surf, which is conter balanced with the curved wave. The general effects make the guy looks very small and gives the shot mood to me. So,

      This is just a wonderfull shot, I love the composition, framing, detail and action

      two beautiful shots. I find the defenders more moody though and maybe because i watch a lot of surfing, this shot has less of a special edge to me than the defenders.

      This image is very well captured but it doesn’t move me in the emotive way that the defenders does. Sorry, Jason

      a really tough decision - great challenge! i like both and can't see any technical flaws. (maybe you could try to crop the horizon, but it isn't too distracting as it is)
      they are speaking very different languages: the calm vs. the action :) i could imaging that your picture was more difficult to get, but after all it is the result what counts.
      this time it will be just a decision of my actual mood - sorry for the defender!

      I hate to be this last one who has to decide when there is 4:4, but what do to.
      Both photos are very good, perfectly captured, well framed.
      Challander's photo is very well done capture of dynamic surfer in action, but defender apart of equal technical aspects has unbeateble mood - there is a long journey to far places in front of him, and that's something we all dream about - unbelivable mood and just perfect

      Sorry to do it

      Good one. The same question - How did you get the shot?

    11. LyrindaS 92 months ago | reply

      Fabulous shot! Dynamic - great angle. The surfer is so intense... I just wonder where in the heck you were standing to get that angle... long lens from a cliff?
