Never tried a shot like thiss, looks a difficult one to get the exposure right on, May be work looking at the setting used by some of our regular surfing experts

Not only great drama but bang-on-the-money timing too. Love the shot, it's well composed and executed.

Judith, I'm going to have to vote for this version. There is too much detail missing in the extreme shadows of the next version. By the way, did I ever ask you how you like your D200? I'm looking for opinions because I am considering upgrading to the 200.

Nicely taken, Judith!
The 2nd is a little more colourful, but I think both are excellent action shots!

Great shot, one to be proud of, on my monitor its almost B&W and looks really effective, great sense of movement in the wave captured, it cuts right through the scene, good photography, Adrian

I prefer this version I think, its very good, I would have like some vertical height cropped off, and for the surfer to take up a larger area.
