photoblog image Surfer at Cascais

Surfer at Cascais

Taken at Cascais, Portugal in February, this surfer was chosen to appear in WhatDigitalCamera.

The picture has been cropped, then resized and had 'edges sharpened' one click for my blog.

.....

The swans and cygnets are fine.
I'll share a new picture of them later in the week.

Wonderful shot Ellie! I can almost imagine that wave moving the surfer along, due to your fine composition!
I still haven't tried this, but by all accounts it is a blast. Did you get on a surfboard down there? - I like your magazine shots, btw.
composition is on point, well taken.
Agree with Dotun, as well as exposure. Perfectly framed.
Great Action Shot Ellie. I like the splash in the wave. Hope you have some more of these smile

Surfing totally mesmerizes me, Ellie! It's a sport I watched often when we lived in California for 12 years. You have captured the "spirit" of the sport perferctly in this pic. It's that balancing act and the intent look-out on the surfer's face that make this for me. But I also LOVE the water!

The closest I ever got to surfing was body surfing on little float boards (where you're lying down in the water, not standing up). Even THAT is fun! smile
Nice shot. I liked the composition

Smashing pic, Ellie, perfectly shot and composed. The light on the surfer and on the wave he's riding is quite wonderful. No wonder it was chosen for publication.

Do we get to see you in the water with the full length steamer and waterproof housing over the olympus ellie. nice work with this series ellie and i would try a pano crop for your own collection.
Fantastic shot! i love the framing you've got here. That e-400 is really very nice too! smile i like it's colour tones and the way it and you have worked the exposure here.
A good sport shot, I like - Lol smile I allways wonder how one can stay standing on that smile

it appears that the water is chilly....people use those same full-body wetsuits here on the west coast of the US....water so cold that i just can't enjoy myself. but it sure looks like this guys is having fun. i can say i have an appreciation for the skill involved in surfing. it's one of the hardest things i've ever tried to do!
