    Default Surfing

    I heard about a surfing comp going on at the beach so it gave me a chance to dust off the 100-400. i knew reach would still be an issue so used the 1.4 converter as well. All taken at 560. Most of these are around 50/70% crops

    Its not really my thing but i thought i would have a go. Could have done with better waves and I'm sure the guys were thinking the same

    number 4 is the pick with composition spot on, action, eye contact and the look of determination on his face

    thanks Alan, Stan, Tom & Carol

    I like the 4th but the 3rd is my pick.

    Its interesting the guy in the 4th shot came up to me and asked if I got any with him and when I showed him asked if he could have some. I sent them and he's now changed the header image on his FB page to that shot :)

    and Tom ...not a chance LOL

    thanks Carol

    Three and four are crackers. Looking at the picture it looks like you had quite even lighting which is handy for avoiding blowing the white highlights but the end result could do with a little contrast boost I feel.
