You capture the moment perfectly. I can imagine the guy in the water calling out, "Come on - the water's fine!" just as that wave in the center is about to splash cold water all over his buddies.

What I find particularly interesting is how well the sharp highlights, particularly on the people, work here. It gives them a sense of solidity vs. the more blended waves. Beautiful water, by the way.

That's really well done David. One little thing though - would you consider softening the edge of the foreground rock?

I keep on going from left to right with a big smile ! This is really a fun subject ! and I also love the sunlit bodies.
That big coming splash is making me anxious :D Brrrrr!

I love it when a painting tells a story and brings back memories... and this one really does. A very cool painting, David.

When I look at a painting I always think back of my childhood and this one brings me a lot of past memories, great job.

Love the water and a sense of "the moment" captured in the boys.

Great Painting. Another name might be "Its Tooooooooo Shallow 16X20". I think the young man in the water should be more like neck deep.

I love the water and the movement of the water in this - and then there is the sunlight illuminating the edges of the figures - and then there is the narrative! Its all around wonderful!
