Nice one, Jethro! That photo really catches that morning light. Great action shot!

Well thank you Kevin but I am still learning. I wanted to get the translucence of the wave as the surfer rode it (frankly, I'd have been happy with just the wave, but the surfer adds interest). However (which is long hand for but) I didn't realize until later that the sunrise light puts the surfer in silhouette.

Oh well. I am learning.

I love the contrast between the solid water and the lit up spray. Can you "shred it" Jethro?

That's what I was searching for KC (I didn't have a lot of choice as the sun and the ocean were both unmovable) - and I have always been fascinated by that transparency when sometimes you can see fish in that bit.

I cannot do nothing like this.

I can swim!

Nicely done Jethro. Tough conditions, however (I'll use your long hand), I'm sure you'll have this figured out in no time. This is exactly what I'd look like if I got on a surfboard...if you were quick enough to see it as I fell off in flat water. :)

Cheers, Randy

I suppose I should have been there at Sunset Randy then he'd have been top-lit!

Oh well, next time.

I wouldn't even be able to stand up on it! I tried wind surfing once.........

I think this fellow knows what he is doing...unlike the rest of us...but that is OK someone has to be the photographer:) Nice job on capturing the translucence. The venture was a success you met your goals. Tomorrow you can have another goal.

I would like a new camera...until I think of the learning curve...then my old one seems just fine:)

He sure does know what he's up to Joy.

Like you I was daunted by the learning curve. But I think I am getting there and know that the light at the end of the tunnel will be visible and in focus one of these days.

Go for it girl - Jethro

These last shots sure look like you are getting it down. The high ISO and F stops and the great quality of light in the low light shots make me want to give it a go...but alas have to get some of those college loans paid down first:( Glad to hear you are throwing the box away:)

David Brown Photogra… on October 24, 2011

Yes, pay the loans off first Joy! Throw the CC into a drawer and save save save. Only then can you really enjoy the products of your labor.

I'm getting there with it and happy to take it slow.

Many thanks - J

Well these loans are OK in that no interest accrues as long as we pay them off over the next 4+ years...which thankfully is do-able:) Even though she had great scholarships....4 yrs college totaled a mind boggling 100K when all is said and done:( No wonder, years ago when we did a will our attorney said not to worry about what would happen to your the time you got your kids through college you wouldn't have any to worry about:) We are just thankful that she got a full ride to grad school or she would have been paying the rest of her life to get those loans paid off.

Glad to hear that you are getting there with the is showing in your shots...not that I expected anything different:)
