This was taken at Lakey Peak in Sumbawa. I saw a storm coming across the bay so i went down to the beach and took some photos of a couple of kids playing in a boat. This kid kept jumping out of the boat when I was trying to take a photo. It was frustrating until I looked at the LCD and realized I'd just snapped a winner. In the background you can see Nungas, a world-class wave peeling across the bay.

Magnifique photo sous un ciel nuageux et belle couleurs. J'aime beaucoup l'expression de l'enfant et le vieux bateau.
Félicitations!... et bienvenue sur TE,

A nice shot captured from a great low point of view. I like the ominous sky behind him, and the composition with the boat. Regards

Welcome to TE, Van, and with such an excellent picture.
Your POV and the colors are just great, capturing at an excellent time. One second before or after, and this shot wouldn't be half as good.
Very well done!

Bon boulot .

Very nice capture, great contrast between the storm in the back and the powerful colors of the kid holding his t-shirt. Good pov and capture of the movement. Good luck

Well they may have been jumping out of the boat, but it also looks as if they are jumping out of the image with the way they look compared to the rest of the darkened scene. Some gorgeous colours here, brilliantly done Van.
