    I have been hanging out for another chance to practice with the new 300mm. Weather cleared enough this afternoon just before the sunset to allow me another quick session.

    1: Sea was whipped up overnight producing a decent swell for the surfers, 3-4m sets coming through.

    2: This sand dredge heads out to dump another load of sand from the harbour.

    [​IMG]

    3: Surfers all lined up.

    [​IMG]

    4: Missed the focus slightly, and shutter speed a little to slow, live and learn. Tricky light to deal with, shooting back into sun with surfers usually in shadow.

    5: A grommett going hard.

    6: Same grommett from above bailing over the back.

    C&C welcomed.

    My favorite is the 2nd one, very picturesque. What camera and lens spec(which 300mm) did you use for this shot and any filters ?

    I really like #3.
    The sun reflection, the color of the water, the wind spray, the adventure of the surfers in different aspects of readyness, and composition - nice capture.

    #1
    Could possibly be my favorite. Do you have a different treatment of that image?

    Just the gear in my sig, Canon 500D/t1i and Canon 300mm /f4L USM (no-IS), no filters at all were used, I almost always use a CPL, but I dont have a 77mm CPL yet, colouring is from natural light right before the sunset, or how it appeared when it rarely broke through the cloud cover, but still very close to sunset.



    Sure, the image I have posted is the closest to how it appeared at the time.[​IMG]

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
