Award Shortlist   


By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Thanks so very much for all your comments & votes on yesterdays' up-load of Aberavon Promenade.

Today's image was taken on Saturday at the beautiful Resolven Lakes, I was asked to capture an image to represent the sport for promotional use. Really enjoyed my afternoon, the weather was beautiful, and it was good fun ! I was surprised to learn that these jet-ski's could travel up to 80 miles per hour.

I decided to convert the image to mono and then added a filter to add some colour - hope you like it ?

18 Oct 2009 12:06PM
Brilliant! I absolutely love this picture- the spray, the colour, the concentration of the driver on his silvery machine (feel an old Hawkwind song coming on)!
Perfect promotional material for the sport - grrrr (I hate jet skis close in to the beach where I live)!
