Whoa! Terrific action caught here (hope he hung on!) and beautiful treatment, to boot! Love how you brought out the many colors, textures and designs in the water, Julianne...your surfer work is always top notch - no exception here, SoCal! #1299178

Marty Straub August 17, 2010

Excellent DD work, Julianne. First of all, I can always ditto anything Valarie says. Next to Chuck Berry, she's my favorite writer. I really like the water treatment you performed on this wonderful photo, and how you kept the surfer free of filters. #8843312

Julianne Bradford August 17, 2010

Wow! I didn't know anyone could say anything as great as Valarie! Or that Chuck Berry was a writer! I'll have to check his books out Marty :-) Thanks so much to 2 of my favorite great photographers..your comments mean so much to me :-) #8843367

Another HUGE WHOA! I'm happy I commented on this one (too many I've missed - My 90 yr young Mom took a fall requiring lots of PT to get her back on her feet - Val's Taxi Service never has a chance to cool it's wheels anymore!) :) - but anyhow, not to get carried away....CONGRATS, dear Julianne - I loved this one from the very beginning and I'm hoping it goes all the way to sure deserves it, as all your very fine Finalists do. Congratulations on them all...Fingers crossed, fingers crossed!! #8909586
