Surfer, by Jocelyn Walker
Click image to see this photo in Jocelyn's gallery.
Jocelyn Walker resides in Australia, where there is no shortage of surf. I really like the decision to go for a black and white result. I haven't seen the original colour version but I would guess that choosing mono has made this a stronger image. The partial silhouette of the main subject works well against the background of the busy surf. The striated reflection along the foreground shore adds a nice touch.
