Default Water Boarding... this is torture?

Last April 22, the weather was fine and this guy was taking advantage of and having a ball!
these were taken in the mid day bright sun in spite of the partly cloudy skies so, please forgive the blown highlights.
I posted 20 something pix on Zinfoilio so I'm posting the link for those that would like to see all the action. http://Goldwinger.zenfolio.com/p905913293/slideshow note the two dog were having fun too!

Looks like you got your camera problem solved - seems to have followed focus and exposures pretty well on this series.

I was intrigued by your title and find that what this activity is actually called is "Wakeboarding". At least that is what I have known it to be called where I lived in Sacramento, California and now here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Maybe it is called "Water Boarding" in Florida.

Images look good to a bit much in the cropping. Color and exposure looks good.

Looks like the title went over someones head.

Nice picture and a great series. Beautiful exposure and a series of pictures that flow nicely in your slide show.

Hey Pen,
No, not yet. these were taken last month before I set it back for service. Still haven't gotten it back yet, will be another 2-3 weeks.

That was the funny thing about it, sometimes it would work fine and other times not.
the one thing that didn't work at all was the bracket button, so that had to be fixed too. Seems I have the worst luck with camera gear, I had to send back my Sigma TC too, it wouldn't work at all. no auto focus plus even in manual mode it would lock out the menu options and focus conformation light and the beep.

Hey Viz,
You're correct, its called that here too, I was just doing a little play on words.

I'm a little confused about your comment re cropping, are you saying I need to crop them? if so, I agree I just haven't taken the time yet.
Thanks for looking and commenting.

Thanks Lou,
Yeah, sometimes I try to be funny and people don't get it, they just think I'm weird. (they may not be wrong)

I'm glad you liked the slide show! the one shot that I liked the best (because it had such a nice rooster tail) had to be the one with the back side of a park sign in the frame. no way to clone it out.

Well done with the slide show, some good shots. How come the Dog didn't get a go on the wakeboard.

The dogs prefer barefoot skiing.
