2015 02 21 Surf

One lone surfer was trying the baby waves off Bikini Beach when I did my daily drive-past. This was more an exercise in hand-holding my 250mm lens than anything else. I was pleasantly surprised at the clarity I managed to get.

This was taken just before I saw the fire on the mountain on Thursday. But I really wanted to upload to get some input. Crits welcome :)
It is a very clear action shot; i like his pose. Well done.

I might crop it a little motr on the tight side but that is probably more preference than knowledge!

Great action capture, especially with your 250! I'm not used to these from you! Well done!

Love the surf all around him. The only thing I would say is if you have Photoshop you could lighten his face a bit and make it clearer.

Fabulous action capture and superb details of the surfer.
Babs' suggestion can also be done in Lightroom. I have recently watched a tutorial and I'm sure I bookmarked it. I will have a search for it and send you the link.
