About the Image(s)

It's surf season in Australia now. I have been take a lots surf competition photos recently. Most photos use 100-400 lens, ISO 1250-2000, F5.6-9.
Which one do you like the best?

I like the one you chose. Original 1 has a somewhat strange expression an in original 2 we don't see the face at all..Therefore my choice. And having done some of this kind of work, appreciate the effort to get everything you want. Well done.   Posted: 03/05/2020 15:52:05

They all look sharp and well exposed. The one that I like the best is the one shown as the main image. It shows the young woman with a lot of action, lots of water splashing and frothy water at the bottom. You also have her face in the image. Original 2 has a lot of action, but is going away from you. Original 1 has the person looking kind of strange.   Posted: 03/15/2020 13:29:51

Thanks Tom for your value and great comment and suggestions! I have taken those kind photos for over 3 years now, and I am looking for more advantage; i.e. slow speed; different action then usually (original 2).   Posted: 03/15/2020 14:31:46

Very good sport images. Surfer is sharp and can see her face expression. I like surfing photography, every time I went to Hawaii I took surfing photos.
I am wondering what is shutter speed. I would shoot the surfer sharp but the splashing water and water froth has little more blur. I more like the one you posted.   Posted: 03/17/2020 20:55:03

You chose well. I would perhaps crop the left hand side so you get a diagonal with the board and the surfer. The water spray in the background is the frosting on the cake! Well done! I like the sharp water. It fits the speed.   Posted: 03/19/2020 21:49:50

Perfect ! Good action shot nothing I could suggest could make it better. Don't care for tho other two you did not put in. Number would be good if it was clear. Number two is a bad angle
