Once a year I get a chance to shoot a local canoe race (kayaks also). All shots with a Canon 30D and a Canon 70-300mm IS USM lens. ISO 400 AV Mode f4.0-5.6 various shutter speeds.

Cool, looks like a great sport to shoot.

For expressions and sharpness the first is my fave but for action I like the 4th. The 2nd and last are a little on the soft side so focus was probably a little off the main point of interest.

How cold is that water this time of years? I'm sure you were glad to be on the bank.

Water temps would be around 45 degrees. Just right for a nice dip:lol:

Great captures! Good timing. I agree with mark...the 1st is technically the best, but great timing on the others.

Those are all incredible shots! My favs are #3 and #5, especially #3. The facial expression and the moment captured so well. Of course, my opinion is one of a regular Joe looking at your pics, not the experienced photog. Having said that, I like them all vey much, but those twoin particular are ones I would shell out some $$ for.

Nice work!
