This is a quality capture here paul, and needs more praise, but its never going to get the attention it deserves on here unless its an over saturated landscape.

Well done
Regards
Mike

exposure spot on, great action shot, caught just right. do you apply any exposure compensation Paul? i tried this a while ago but most of my shots were underexposed because of the bright surf, of course i know better now Wink
