Good morning everyone! I found this one from the archives for the challenge. In the full size version you can even see a reflection of the water spray on the hull of the boat.

Noice shot of the boat. The colors and exposure are great. However, this shot almost doesn't qualify. You've got lots of nice reflections in the water and a few shadows on the far side of the water. That qualifies but I would like to see the shadows have a more equal billing with the reflections. This challenge is about combinations of elements, not one out of the three.

What is causing the dark area in the upper right? Is there a building or hill causing that area to be in shade? I think it might be a better shot if some of that dark area were cropped out.

Hi Cal, there is a stand of very tall trees just out offrame causing the shadows.

Bob,

The action portrayed is great. I found the contrast between the calm waters and the high-speed action of the boat interesting. I would perhaps have shaken my head at the boat and driver disturbing the calm serenity of the scene.

Likewise the shadows on the right tend to dominate a bit more than necessary.

Aloha
