    I don't really like it. It's noisy and the colors aren't great. The sky is blown out (or just a cloudy day), the horizon is pelfed, the people/boat in the background are distracting, and I think it's cropped too close to the surfer on the right.

    I like it, I wish it wasn't so noisy and that there weren't people in the background.

    If I took it i would've left more space to the subject's right side as well.

    The cutting of the board kills it for me, noise I could've lived with.

    This was shot with a Canon AE-1 and a Tamron 70 -210mm 1:4 5.6 lens

    So the noise is from the 400 speed film I suppose

    Nothing is cropped

    There is a person on the rocks on the left that needed to be in the picture

    I knew something looked different (noise/grain).

    And by crop we mean the awkward in-camera crop you gave it...

    I like the noise. You noise nazi's need to jump in a fucking lake. Now you assholes don't even like real film grain. Jesus christ. I'll never understand the way you guys think.

    I like the shot, just really wish the board wasn't so close to the edge of the frame. a little seperation on that side would keep me in the shot much better.

    not a fan of the closeness of the board to the frame, he looks like he’s in an un-natural pose, and it's crooked

    The noise/color I actually like but its pelfed, the subject is odd, and hes squeezed right up against the frame.
