    Just shows how your skill carries you with minimal PP. Thanks for the explanation, too.

    Looks like a fun scene. In my favs despite looking like the white balance was a bit off (could be my screen though).

    What a joyful feeling this gives to the viewer! The colours are beautiful and there is a good sense of movement.

    What a fun action shot! I can just feel the joy of the boy being tossed in to the waves.

    did you get a late booking or was the holiday just at the right time.
I was going to suggest there is "emptiness" on the LH side but cropping would have lost the result you got here

    Wow - someone is having way too much fun. What a super action shot. Other than wanting to be a bit closer I like the whole shot a lot.

    @out of focus, yes I did consider cropping the foreground out, but it just didn't seem right, so I left it in. As for the sky this is Hawaii, the sky looks pretty much like it does in the photo, so check your monitor ;)

    A great moment captured. Nice color and composition. A favorite.

    i think the muddy water sway should have been cropped off. The sky looks very un natural and framing should be from low ground

Still I put it high in favorites since timing is great and 'Bounce in Blue Beach' goes well with the theme..

    Great catch! True colors, great "action" and technique. Did you consider cropping just to the right of the the larger rock formation (on left of image), and create points of a triangle at the smaller rock, the man and the boy? Just a thought.

    @jade, not sure where you think the image is grainy, maybe your looking at the sand, or your screen is dirty, lol....the ISO is only @ 100.

I think I've answered the Q re; detail extractor before, it's a filter on color Effex pro used to enhance an image, a little like HDR!

This is the least edited photo, I've submitted on panachallenge.

    Fabulous capture - and a little freaky at the same time - how can the kid get that high?!!!! High interest. Beautiful backdrop. Great colours.

Technical question: What is detail extractor? The shot looks a little grainy.

    Great photo!!! In my top two

    Wow, great timing! The splash of water and the waves make for a very dynamic picture. In my top picks for sure.
