    This is a beautiful photograph! I love the angle, it feels like you are sitting right in the ocean with the waves pushing against you.

I agree with all of the above. Not often mentioned is the complementary color contrast between the blue and the intense orange of the sunset (or rise). Reeally nice, Zack.

I'd have to agree with Tracy! The low angle makes it seem like the viewer is right on the water! Love how you filled over two thirds of the frame with the water. The sense of motion is very strong! Superb job!

Such movement, color contrast and perfect perspective. It's one of those shots that reminds one of the force of nature. I'd die and go to heaven if I could achieve something this good. Congrads...well earned.
