Thanks!

Hey Lemmy, looks like that 24mm works well. Do you shoot with anything wider to get your barrel shots. I'm slowly saving  for a housing for my 1DX but unsure which UWA lens to also add. I have used and own the Tokina 10-17mm but I'm not really interested in the fisheye look anymore. I have a 35mm but not sure that would be wide enough. I was thinking about the 14mm. Have you had any experience using this lens for your surf shots? What could you recommend? Thanks.

1DX 400f/2.8, Shot @ f/2.8 & 1/1250th ISO800

Excellent as usual....how close do you estimate you were Edward?

Around 20 meters, this Guy was up a Tree but we were able to sit on a small rise and with the added height of the vehicle almost shoot at the same level, I had the 200-400f/4 with me also, but chose to shoot the 400f/2.8 as it was just light at Dawn, the f/2.8 does have it's advantages, but, the Leopard more than filled the frame, so the 200-400 would have allowed me to get the whole the subject in the Frame, at the cost of higher ISO, or move the vehicle.

WOW! stunning eml,can i ask what software you use for editing?b&w here is stunning :)

Hi Bornshooter, NIK's Silver Effex Pro 2, Started with the attached colour Image in LR5, applied several of the Presets in Silver Effex Pro 2, and made some local adjustments in PS CC around the Head & Eyes.

I bit the bullet and am now working in the Adobe Cloud, other than it seems murky in here, not sure there's any change really from LR4 & CS6, other than my wallets now slimmer.

Beautiful B&W. Well done Edward. I love it.

Awesome! A beautiful portrait of a leopard.

Thanks Guys, only thing that compares with being there & taking the shots is the appreciation of others of the Images, Thank You.

I constantly feel fortunate in being able to Travel to these places & see first hand the extraordinary glimpses that exists out there and the opportunity to steal that glimpse with a Photograph.

Now I have a headache from all that "deepness".

When I saw the B&W pic I thought I'd like it much more than the colour one. But seeing this one now, I like them both equally. I guess it is the intense stare that is captivating and if you look at it the colours are kind of monotonic except fro the bit of blue between the trees...

+1. I usually love colour. To my eyes, B&W is just so...monochromatic ;)

Thanks RPT, the B&W was interesting in that it does make the eyes stand out more, another advantage of the f/2.8 as long as you nail the eyes and in this case both eyes ended up in focus, almost.

. . . Do you shoot with anything wider to get your barrel shots. I'm slowly saving  for a housing for my 1DX but unsure which UWA lens to also add. I have used and own the Tokina 10-17mm but I'm not really interested in the fisheye look anymore. I have a 35mm but not sure that would be wide enough. I was thinking about the 14mm. Have you had any experience using this lens for your surf shots? What could you recommend? Thanks.

I’m thinking about getting the 14mm as well.   " . . . corrected for rectilinear distortion, provides a 114-degree diagonal angle of view . . . "

The only lenses I’ve used in the water in the digital era have been the 24 and the 85.  Years past, I had fisheye lenses in housings but felt that they had some drawbacks.  Making a dome port for a fisheye is more technical than making a flat port.  In order to create a correct image, the center of the lens needs to be concentric with the center of the sphere in the dome port.  When done right, there are lots of neat underwater shots and over / under the surface shots possible but most surf housing manufacturers aren’t doing the hard math and the results are hit and miss.  If you google “underwater fisheye virtual image” there’s a wealth of information on the subject.
 
Also, I’m usually shooting small, mushy waves and need the compression of a telephoto lens to make the waves look steeper.  A wide angle flattens the wave but a fisheye really pulls the plug.  Since ultra wide and fisheye photos look farther away, you need to get extremely close to make the surfer figure prominently in the composition of the photo.  Finally, there are a glut of fisheye and ultra-wide photos from GoPro’s and other POV cameras so it’s hard to make your images look different from a million others.  You’ll find a lot of input from shooters with fisheye and ultra-wide angle lenses here:

Thanks Lemmy, for the info and links. Will certainly be looking at spu and learning more. As I only shoot as a hobby and my own pleasure it might be while before I can outlay for another housing and lens. I used to shoot with a 40D with the Tokina 10-17 fisheye lens in a SPL housing witih results I was happy with as an amature. I do miss shooting from the water as  a surfer of 30+ years its a good way to keep fit and be out there still. Getting a little older and slower in the surfing department though..lol I understand about getting close and the saturation in the market of like shots. Setting yourself apart is difficult in the surf industry.. I agree about your previous comment and Clarke little 's amazing images. I can only aspire to create something half as good.. Anyway will also look forward to seeing more of your surf shots here.. I enjoy them a lot as its certainly where my interest lies...
