Good high-ISO response. I've tried so get some kayak shots myself, but without great success; they're generally too far out when they pass my house.

:blah: I cheat, this is part of my paddle group :blah:
I'm stuck on shore carying a pager :sad: so best I can do is shoot at them.

Also hand-held, I'm starting to get better at that :!:

Yes your crop works, (and this would make it into a nice print too)
Also alter away, always nice to see alternates:!:

Bit of analysis on the change:
OK if you want to cut out the evening sky, and the resulting null space for text.
(I used the 120mm setting on the 120-300 F2.8 lens to include it, most I would have cut is some of the foreground)

And you have changed a vertical into a horizontal.
Which makes is a filler shot, instead of a potential full page or cover shot :-) since these dslr don't have the umph to make double page spreads.
(No, this one is not good enough for that! But I always keep the potential for sales in mind when I shoot).


Here is another version re-cropped for 8.5*11 page size & cleaned a bit (dock removal, I did not have a government permit for the demoliition so I hope they don't notice)
