Jedi,

Good action shot.
IMHO
I think you can heighten the effect by possibly showing the faces of the paddlers and their concentration a bit more. Try lightening the shot with an editor ans see what happens.

By the way, Congrats!

Aloha

that's no the original size pic. At original size faces are much more visible.

I'm searching for a picture hosting.

At the other hand, i prefer to not retouch too much the pics. Only levels and some time a little color correction. (I'll try what you say)

Congrats. Good photo shows the action very well. I liked it when I saw it.

I know the feeling, in June I not only had a photo on POD but also won third place for that month. Good luck.

The lighted full size gets my vote.

The expression on their faces esp. the first seated paddler in front with that determined look.

Good job.

Aloha

Hey nice shot and congrats on POTD. I also took 3rd place once, for April '03. It was beginner's luck for sure, as it was my first time out with the new S602z.

Is it me, or have the judges gone insane with the results for July '03? A bowl of Fruit Loops?! I'm definitely no expert, but... Hugh? No offense to the photographer, but could someone enlighten me to the prize-winning virtues of this photo (in all seriousness, I'd like to know).

Congratulations and good luck in the monthly contest.

Jim
