About the Image(s)

Taken 2021 08/16 09:52. Coal Oil Beach. Santa Barbara, CA. USA
Canon EOS 5DSR Camera with Canon EF100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS USM. 400mm, 1/1500 sec, f/8, ISO 500. Hand held. Lightroom: Crop, level, nothing else.

I went to this beach to take photos of at-risk plovers. None of them was exceptional. There was a quite competent surfer and got a number of good pictures of surfing. But, I like the humorous story of this one.

Interesting image. The image tells a story. Your cropping looks good to me. The image is sharp. You have caught the action at the right moment. May be a fraction of seconds before this moment with clear view of the head of the surfer would have been better.   Posted: 09/19/2021 10:13:04

Good story of what it's like to be a surfer, but I too would prefer to see a face.   Posted: 09/19/2021 16:09:29
