I know that some of you will hate what I have done to this shot, but I just think it fits the surreal moment.
We watched dozens of these kite and wind surfers for hours, but this one chap really stood out, he was really talented and quite dishy too Wink

I took the shot at the southern most tip of Rhodes where dozens, if not hundreds of kite and wind surfers gather most days, how they do not collide all the time I do not know.

FOR THOSE THAT MIGHT NOT LIKE THIS VERSION, THERE IS ANOTHER ONE TO LOOK AT THIS IS QUITE DIFFERENT Smile

Many thanks for all your comments on my last few uploads, it's good to be back.
Have a great weekend.

Excellent work on V.1, Annette, I think it works so well. Very well captured, too, excellent timing. Carol

Two great images Annette - V1 works really well, and V2 gives me a smug sense of pleasure to see him splash down.

I'm one of those who doesn't quite like the treatment of #1 Annette, but I do like its moment, composition and energy! V2 is great fun.

V1 reminds me of those pictures you get on plastic which change as you wiggle it around. It looks rather 3D and I've not seen this done before. V2 made me laugh. Smile

I agree with oldgreyheron. The clarity has been altered a bit drastically IMHO, but otherwise it's a good shot. I'd rather have seen a more "normal" version of the same as well.
