took this last week in Sanibel Island, Florida. First time with my canon rebel for some action shots. I was surprised at many shots where the background was very sharp with the buildings being a couple miles away.

Hi Photo118 - just a point of note..... it is kite surfing..... lol (don't want the windsurfer out there getting annoyed).

As for the focus issues it is hard to keep such a small target in the AF zone (I would not use multi point with this as there is a lot more background than surfer).

I would suggest shooting in portrait and using a lower focus point to try to get the kite in as well and you would have had a top notch shot.

Would love to see what you get if you take any more.

Thanks. Seeing it was my first attempt at this type of action, I was mainly just going after getting a clear focus shot. I think I did that for now. I took many other shots, but I would think they are almost the same. I will post a few. thanks for the advice.
