Thanks so much for the size on this one. It's perfect for my monitors and it's just a truly magnificent upload. You've done an outstanding job and it's a 10 from me in the voting booth. The colors are outrageously good!!

This puts my wave photo to shame. Amazing image. I hope you were using a waterproof housing. A true masterpiece.

I love the angle on makes the wave seem much bigger than I'm thinking it really is. The sky looks fantastic in the background...definitely makes me want to go surf!

I saw your request for constructive criticism so here's my 2 cents
I love this picture. Colors are very bright and the whole thing is well exposed. Your white balance is spot on too, though this doesn't appear to be a very difficult lighting situation. My only hiccup is I wish the DOF was a bit longer. Now I don't know exactly how the AF works on the old 10D, my rebel XTi has the stuff from the 40D, so its too new to compare apples to apple I think. Now I said I would've liked a longer DOF but that's quite possibly a pipe dream given the light intensity, shutter speed required to have a very high f-stop and the ultimate lack of quality at the super high ISO it would require to keep shutter speed down. Not to mention get the motion captured as nicely as you have done.
Composition is very good, the image is well balance and there is much to see throughout your photo. The reflection of the sky is one of my favorite parts.
Hope I didn't talk you ear off too much!
