time for a surf

By sumit  
I was taking some surfing shots when this lady took to the water in front of me. I really like the delicate positioning of her hand.

I agree, the 'pose' is great.

I must go surfing.

You've caught the wave breaking nicely and the slihouette is sharp. I agree, the hand is just right. She's a little too central for my liking, though. I like the frame effect.

I'm with Dave on this one, although having said that I like the space that you've given her in the shot and it may have worked even better with an even wider, panoramic format. Love the frame!

Good shot.


P.S. I've just had a play with this in PS-pushed the contrast quite high and darkened the shot; think it works really well!
