    #1 is great. I would be so nervous of the camera getting wet....

    3 is good, what with the yellow of the boat reflecting light back into his face, the boat "gliding", him close enough to be seen, and not a bit of distracting background.

    Though, sure enough, the facial expressions in 1 are sooo funny.

    Fedaykin, nah, I was in the boat, not hangin' over or anything.

    LaFoto, I was trying to decide how to handle these images. It's not technically portraiture, or at least I wouldn't call it that. Some have more "distracting background" than others, so, some I trim up and some I leave. Same with the angled shots. I think it lends itself to the "action", so I am not correcting some of them.

    I also thought I would take some of these and do some fairly close crops, because of the great faces they made. I think it will add some variety to what they'll get as a final product.


    Coming back to look, I think #2 is underexposed, and I did a little too much dodging on the kid. Easy fix.

    I'm more so jealous that I didn't get my turn on the speed tube.
