my initial thinking was there is a lot of texture and drama in the water and it would add to the photo
hmmm now i am thinking what would happen if i lowerd the contrast setting in the camera??
I think if you reduced the contrast you would end up with very flat looking shots. You might want to shoot RAW to get a bit more dynamic range but that will slow things down. I never shoot RAW for sports shooting.
