Water skiing..is this any good?
« on: April 17, 2013, 06:45:44 AM »
Made with my new old 40d (and 70-300L) that I bought as a backup. Definitely the fastest frames per second camera I have ever had. More of my images here at...http://www.ivanmuller.co.za/bloghttp://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/

I'm guessing you on the boat?  I really like the first one... the 2nd one is a little too dark for me and I dare to say it is underexposed, and the last one, has a composition issue.  The first two are not entirely following the rule of thirds, but it is close.  The last one... the subject is too in the middle. 

Cool shots... and I'm not sure if that is what you were asking, but that would be my feedback.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I liked the first and the third. The third one for the reflection. You can just see the wake at the bottom right of the picture. I thought the third one was a powerful shot.

I agree. The third shot is framed perfectly. I would have brought up the shadows more in that second one, or was it shot with a Canon :). Nice shots guys.
