    This is a spot where I learned to paddle, and used to frequent year round.

    1) Above the rapids

    2) Getting ready to launch

    4) Ferrying in to the wave

    5) Side surfing the wave in a low brace

    6)I'm afraid I can't leave out my ever patient sidekick who let me know when to move on by kicking me.

    Some of the composition isn't the best, but let me know what you think please so I can try to improve.

    Cheers

    I really like the composition in the second picture. I also like the 4 th picture very much for the same reason. In the first picture, the first thing I notice was the tree but I think the bridge might have been more intersting to see... that's my only criticism, I like hear your comments on it. A nice series overall though. Hope to see more from you.

    skiboarder72, I like #3 as well, but wish I had shot with more "room" in front of him, as opposed to him leaving the frame.

    schumionbike, I had trouble with the first oneas well. The bridge is just as long in the other direction, and there is no way to get it all in from the island I was on so I chose to show at you see it.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I agree on #3 being the best out of this bunch...that water looks VERY cold!

    In #3, I feel there should be some open water in front of him, so it doesn't look like hes gonna kayak off the edge of the paper.. The action in the shot is great, but it just seems that hes cramped by the edge of the shot

    Thanks Antartican and Olympus, I agree that there should be more water in front of the boat entering the water. Live and learn, eh.

    I think thats the only thing wrong with the series. You do a good job of capturing action in your shots :D
