    I finally got around to processing a couple shots from Canadian Thanksgiving!

    These were shot from the boat using a 70-200 f4 L

    We were skiing on the Gatineau river and had a blast!!

    i dont have a fav if i had to choose id say the first one because of the longer splash? i think thats what you would call but both are awesome.

    I prefer the first to the second because he's just turning towards a path to inside the frame again, while in 2 he's soon to rush out of the frame and has only little room left on that side. I like the sharpness of the splashing water! (However I doubt he was too happy to see what he looked like while he was at water-skiing ;) ).

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    It was fun taking the shots!! I skied as well, of course. The water was cold, but that was a good excuse not to fall!!

    Lafoto, I agree on the comment about the second shot. I was trying to loosely follow the rule of thirds while keeping the spray with a 6x4 crop.

    My brother in law hasn't seen the shots yet, but I think he will chuckle at his expressions!!

    Cheers

    I also like the first shot with him cutting back into frame, don't worry about rule of thirds it's not the be all and end all
