Judges Comment

Great timing, lighting and a killer reflection against a uniform background add up to an excellent action shot.

Photographers Comment

Kevin Morrison K. Morrison Images, Round Rock, TX. I appreciate being recognized with the Mark of Excellence. I was fortunate enough to capture this image in Port Aransas, TX. I have been back a couple of times since and have photographed Skimmers but I have never had the same result as that particular morning. The water has not been that smooth and the lighting has not been as perfect. I have to think that God had it all orchestrated. I used my Canon 5D MK 1 and Canon 100-400mm lens.
