I am a novice photographer who is extremely keen, I took this on a rather dull but windy Sunday. I was switching between ISO 400 and 200 at regular intervals depending on the weather. I would be grateful for any critiqes that come my way. (sorry I cant remember which lens I used!) Oh by the way, I did have a very pathetic attempt at removing a van that was parked up in the background and a few signs. I rushed this and know with more time I could improve this. Thanks.

Excellent shot. You've caught the water really well and although you can tell where the cloning out has been done it's not too bad and as you say with a bit more time it would look better. It's difficult on grey days to get any life and depth in a picture but you've done really well with this.

You have done extremely well as a novice to capture this shot and keep the focus sharp. With more pracice you will be able to perfect your cloning technique.
You could add further impact to the shot by decreasing the depth of field, this would make the background more blurry and focus more on the windsurfer.
This could be achieved by using a lens with a longer focal length ie 400mm, also by opening the aperture as wide as possible
In photoshop this can be achieved by making a selection around the sail and the background and under 'filters' selecting 'blur' and then 'gausian'
Well done, as sports photography is a subject that many more experienced photographers find difficult!

Thank you for your excellent tips and indepth knowledge. I take on board (pardon the pun) your comments and look forward to learning better techniques in photography and image manipulation.
