I had my first chance today to try out my 400mm lens for the main purpose that I got it for.
Its a very different feeling working with a fixed length lens but I think the results weren't too bad for a first try.
I'd welcome any input from those more skilled in the art of surf shooting as I know there is a lot more to learn yet,
This is a sequence of four shots in the trick.
I was using shutter priority set to 1/1600th sec with f5.6 to 6.3 and ISO 200. Shot off a monopod.
(All are approx 80% of full frame)
(I've spotted one weakness already - the exposure / colour balance changes as the angle of the shot / background changed)
