    Hey all

    Here are a few shots of a buddy at a local wave. The water is near 0 degrees celcius. A week ago the ice was still coming down!!

    Please let me know what you think. Be harsh if you feel the need!!


    All I did to the shots was crop, boost the contrast and a wee bit of sharpening.

    These are great! Awesome job on freezing the action. Don't envy how cold that guy must have been though! Love his expression in #4.

    Thanks guys!

    I agree that 1 & 4 are my fav's as well, but I put the others in to continue the sequence.

    Anyone else care to comment?

    Cheers

    I think you made the right choice. They work well in a series. It shows the battle against the river. And, the 4th one has continued, implied action- like victory of the battle but not the war. I like 'em!

    Thanks for the nice comments.

    By the way robitussin, you can't fight river, only play with it! (It will win everytime if you try!!)
