Very nice progression of color and light from the dark sky through the bright horizon to the dark&bright water. The fishrman's silhouette is absolutely perfect, in form and size. Great shot! If I can, I'd suggest you consider an alternate framing - cutting out the lower part of the wave in the foreground, in order to keep as much as possible the beautiful blue/white effect on the sea surface.

@karetnikov: thanks for the suggestion Karetnikov! I appreciate you taking time to think about my photo. I understand you. but I think it would decrease the tension within the image itself. i'd like to make it look very chaotic, so the quiet man in the middle would stand in strong juxtaposition against it. again, thanks for the thoughts!

Wow, fantastic shot and composition! I love your ironic title. The figure in the distance is perfect.

A wonderful feel here, from the splashing wave in the foreground to the super Don Quixote-sque silhouette over there. Love your compo & light.
