Water skier

By DeanH  
I saw some people water skiing on the lake nearby at the weekend and wanted to try and capture some action shots which is something i haven't really had much exposure to.
The light was very awkward and the skiers were far enough away for me to need the full 300mm on my lens which isn't it's sharpest area to be honest. In colour the pic is only slightly coloured with a little brown so i have desaturated and added tone in CS2.
Im not 100% happy with it and certainly there is room for improvement but i like the wave made by the ski.

Comments and criticism more than welcome
