  3. Great shots both, although the first one has a little bit too much saturation in my opinion. Maybe that’s why its like a postcard 😉 I do like the composition, the reflection is very nice.

    The second one has great expression: the surfer is just waiting for better times, prepared to go in the water.. Nice DOF!
