    Alright, so.. About a month ago me and some buddies went on a Canoing trip. A friend brought is D40x with him [I shoot with a D40.] I decided not to bring my camera... He had his in a waterproof bag.

    Anyways, we came upon this spot where he wanted me to take pictures while he went through the rapid. So, i did. Was using the 55-200mm VR. I was pleased with the results.

    These are liked! Post more.

    Your friend must be happy with these...he's still nicely in focus even though he's going through the white water. Good work

    I would not worry too much about it. Kind of like cutting off someone's hand in a photo. It is understood that they have a hand or a paddle. The key is the emotion that you brought out in the frame.

    Who knows why you did not get a lot of responses yet. No matter.

    You have some strong work on your website! Did I mention I have on '07 Wrangler JK. Somewhere around here there is a Jeep thread.

    Oh and thanks.. hah. forgot to include that. The website itself is kinda bland and boring, but i figured i needed something to showcase my pictures other than photobucket.. and im one of the few who dont really use flickr.

    Wasn't my bag, And it was just a normal waterproof bag, like, he had to stop and get it out of the bag to take pictures.
