O.K. my "Breaking News" photo was a big success. Problem is how do you follow that up?................... You go look for it's big brother. You get wet. You take bigger risks. You see what I'm talking about? I got up on a cold (50 something degrees which in Miami is cold) and windy Sunday morning and went out in that South Beach surf with my baby and got busy just for you guys. Hope you enjoy these NC POV's (Nut Case POV's).............. and keep the donations coming (Joe's Camera repair loves me).

I love the energy of this shot! The beautiful sunlight coming thru the spray is perfect! Great work on the composition as well. The only thing I could say is that it may be able to be a tad sharper towards the very bottom of the break to the left side. Just seems a bit fuzzy there. Nice Work! #874055
