Fun? Strange way to have fun, maybe he'd enjoy being dragged behind a horse next?

Certainly looks like a lot of effort - nice shot.

Great capture, the expression on his face says it all.

Might be called Master Kite by the looks of things! Great effort caught in his expression and pose, you timed the shot very well. I'd be interested to know your reasoning behind the choice of tone? Well done Pete.

Thanks all. No reasoning behind the tone (as far as I'm aware...could be a subconscious thing) I just liked blue on this.

A super capture, Pete. The effort and the struggle is evident and the toning seems to suit the picture perfectly. Great stuff Smile

Well caught, really cool subject, you manage to really catch the feeling of what it is like to powerkite, without showing the kite!
Really good,

Admit it - you wished for that kite to whip him headlong down the beach....or would that be just me?

Now that is one fab pic. Really like this so much. Got a thing about kites anyway - but what on earth was HE hanging on to - a dirigible?? LOL

Mind you I have this wonderful visual of him twirling about in the air hanging on to the string .. LOL

I think he must be trying to fly a zeplin sized kite in a hurricaine.

The tone is very appropriate somehow... also, I don't know if you have noticed, but the bloke looks a bit like Robert Redford in the 70's! Click

Why the toning?
Sorry, just a beginner.
