    GO JEFF! Your pix shows more sponteneity and an unusual angle! Good luck, because your photo is better. Seriously… There is a lot more going on in Jeff’s photo and not as much empty boring space. I can respect the boat/tube photo, but I prefer Jeff’s.

    Yes, there is a lot more going on in Jeff’s photo, that’s what the problem is! I find myself focusing on everything else except for the rider. All the other stuff going on in that photo takes the focus off the rider, the whole point is to get a great picture of the rider, not the other “visual noise” around him. Andy’s pic puts the focus squarely on the rider, where it belongs!
