WOW. They are all spectacular but #4 stands out.The composition, skin exposure, (not to mention those hunky muscles) are perfect. I can almost feel the spray! nice work

NHL I'm in awe of your photo taking abilities. . .To quote Arthur Spooner from The King of Queens.

"my admiration for you is so strong right now. . it borders on lust"



Do these photos have any post processing work done to them? Please tell me they do so I wont' feel like crap when ilook at my own photos. .

Actually #1 and #4 is the same 'hunk' - He was also the most spectacular to watch!

You can rest easy now: I increased the saturation, resized, and sharpened slighly before adding the drop-shadow frame :-)
-> Pictures in good light always come out good... especially southern CA!



Thank You for the compliments...

Nice shots! What type lens were you using and where were you standing as it appears your right on top of them?

I had only the EF 28-135mm USM IS for this trip, but I was able to get close to the actions from a fishing pier which has a nicer vantage point... than the beach

Wow - you mean it's actually possible to take good shots - and action shots at that - without an L lens? I'm completely shocked.

Very nice shots by the way. I have to say I like #3 because of the angle .

Ha ha ha - That's a good one! Ditto with Cartier-Bresson who did not know what an L is and he didn't even use an SLR...

IMO People are too oversold by the marketing, I even read on a Nikon thread where a poster only buy lenses made in certain countries and not others... :lol: :-) :G

NHL,

Great pics. Awesome. Can you and JohnG explain the little exchange in newbie terms? What am I (other newbies) missing in this exchange. Sounds like an old, running joke that may help in some of our camera and lens knowledge
