These were taken with my 20D and my EF 300mm f4 L IS lens.

Mathew,

Thanks for posting something so different.

Were these heavily cropped? That's a great camera/lens but all 3 shots seem to suffer from a loss of detail and sharpness. Of course, that could be the downsizing to fit in the post as well.

Given that, the shots from the front will almost always work better. The last has the most potential as it shows motion better than #2 (which almost looks like he's just standing)

Let me know about the crop vs. downsize issue though.

well they were cropped but they are close to the orginal width. I mostly cropped out sky and water.

These were taken just after sunset. At 3200ISO so that might be why there is some loss of detail.

Hey Matthew,

For the conditions you were working under then I think you have done a good job.

Would have been cool if you could have got a side on shot and some motion blur!!

Nice

Mark.
