Hi Karen,

A nice well thought out pic! I like the way you have used a longish exposure to show the movement in the water, yet you have managed to keep the two guys sharp. I also like the effect of small waves leading to bigger ones at the back, with just those two daring individuals to give interest.

Best wishes peter

Many thanks Peter and NickolayR for your kind words you both have given, this image was hand held,normally I would use a tripod to take this sort of shot, but this day I was daring, it was also very windy so it made it harder, I saw these 2 surfers and the waves were kind, I wanted that "layered" look shall we say:)) as you said you liked the "small waves leading to the bigger ones at the back", I'm so pleased you like this shot, thanks both for the likes I appreciate it:))

Warm Wishes,
