Hi Chris
This is a cracker, not sure how much it has been cropped! But this close up works so well, with the concentration on the face and movement of the sea. 20-20.

You can't get a better action shot than this Chris, his face is pin sharp and the water looks like it is going to leak out of my PC screen.
Have a great weekend

Good afternoon, Chris,
What a marvellous action shot, the activity beautifully frozen with such clarity. I envy you being able to do this sort of shot......I'm hopeless with this sort of subject, and prefer my subjects to be moving very slowly, even better not at all.Smile

Superb capture, very sharp in all that action. You would think his hands would be frozen and uncapable of holding on. Excellent action and expression captured........Sandy

Great fun I'm sure, water sports are usually a great rush of activity and speed. I wouldn't try this for all the tea in China.

What a brilliant action shot, Chris, a super sharp image with amazing detail throughout Smile. I do admire people who can capture these action shots - I'm better at shooting things that don't tend to move about!

I've seen many action shots in magazines, and the like, but have certainly never seen a single one better than you do Chris, to get this so pin sharp as you have takes a special knack, and you are unsurpassed in that department!

You have showed us how landscape photography should be done. Now you are showing us how sports photography should be done.

PS: When are you going to upload a photograph I am not going to vote for?
