My local beach, Costa da Caparica is a surfing hotspot in Portugal. I just need a telephoto to get in close. Nice. Matt

Thanks all,
Matt, this was taken at the 150 mm end of the lens, a 300mm 35mm equiv, and cropped.
Full frame would have needed a 600mm at least.

Good framing and great backlighting. Would be nice to see a board in there too, but it doesn't take a great leap of imagination does it?

Thanks for the comments folks,
Chas, the board shows up great in the full version Smile. I thought the guy was about to wipe out, but he recovered it.

Really well composed and the lighting is excellent. I think it needs some work on levels/curves to adjust the tones and show this image at it's full potential.

We do seem to follow each other around Smile
Hardest part was finding a surfer who could stand up for more than a second or two Wink

Good action shot. Love the rather unusual tones of the sea. Great capture.
