I find this shot both intriguing because of the dynamics and disturbing because of the lack of anywhere to rest the gaze.
I'm curious what others think.

Maybe it's no longer a concern, but I wonder whether a print would have patches of blank white? (It's just something I've recently been trying to take into account when I work on my photos, so it's on my mind.)

Isaac - You are probably right. 
I wasn't thinking of printing this one because as much as I like the dynamics, I don't think the image holds together unless the objective is to produce tension.  I am curious whether that is a personal reaction or more general.

I agree. The whirlpool alone and its attendant flows would be good. The foam pile just splits our attention.

It's too much of a blur for me. (When I try to expand on that it just sounds mean.)

Aloha,

This is very nice, some of the highlights are blown which is an issue and the dominate shape is a bit over powering, which stops your story dead in its tracks. but other compositions like this would be worth exploring artistically.
