Appropriate cropping, koruvs !

Maybe I would have left a little bit more water , however this is my personal taste.

koruvs,

This is an awesome shot in my eyes. Motorsports action shots are my favorite type of photo, hands down. Powerful, beastly, hydrocarbon-powered creations in motion and doing cool stuff... Arrhh, Arrhh! It takes some horsepower to throw a plume of water like that... OK, I'm finished...

Back to the photo, I think it's the dark, shaded hillside behind the jet-ski's plume that makes the shot. The contrast really makes the rooster tail stand out. Did you plan this?

Hope you don't mind, but the other machine in the photo bothered me a little. I cropped it out and came up with this:

I think I personally like the photo better with this crop, but I certainly am no expert. Have a great day.

Jim

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the comments, I'm no expert either. I didn't plan the shot at all. I had been watching that paticular jetskier for about 5min when I decided to get at close as physically possible. His machine seemed the meanest on the lake so I had to get a shot I then zoomed in at 8x, panned, focused and got 3 RAW images. The 2nd shot is the one I posted as it was the best of the 3.

BTW, I like the cropping you did, I just left the other jetskier in there to show the different tail size
