Great color and spot on with the exposure. The surfer is really well back lit.
Very sharp. Well done.

Hi Amir, nice use of the surfer for the silhouette against the sunset. I was at a beach like this last night too, but no surfers unfortunately to use like this.

excellent shot, Amir. I agree that placing the sun just behind the surfer was a wise decision - left visible the sun would distract viewers attention from the perfect silhouette. I also like the fact that although there's quite a lot of colour and detail in the rest of the scene, the man is just black outline, I find that it emphasises how he symbolises all the surfers instead of being that one particular person on the beach. love the feeling of liquid gold to the water, fantastic colours. great shot :)

This shot is going straight to my favourite folder. That's the right place for it. Great concept.

this is simply a perfect compo! Everything works perfectly (from light to dof, pov, etc, etc). No more words. Just great!

Good composition, I like the curve in the clouds high in the sky. The details in the sand are well defined.

Niceeee compo! Really good idea with the "masked" sun. You put the guy in the right/proper side of frame. Great colors.

Very good idea to put the man before the sun. The cloudy sky is beautiful and a good framing.

Beautiful silhouette … the position of the surfer in the frame is just perfect
