    Nice capture Doug. To bad you have to put the copyright across the
    horizen instead of in the water just below the surfer or just above
    the horizen. Is it possible to have a tighter crop on the surfer who
    caught the wave? Or more shots of the female surfer on the far left?
    I know a 24-70mm lens, either a f/2.8 or a f/3.5-5.6, wouldn't have
    brought the action any closer. So might I suggest thet the next time
    you take a "day at the office" you bring a longer lens. It would help
    in cropping and bring the action closer to the viewer.
    Besides that, I know it is becoming Autumn there in Oz. I hope that
    you had a good summer and that the fall will bring more photography
    work for you.

    Not attacking. Just making suggestions on which you can take or leave.

    I like the way he put the horizon dead smack in the center.
    The typical beginner's mistake.

    Good points, Draco. A 24-70 hardly seems adequate for surf shots
    unless you are in the water yourself. Even a 70-200 would have been
    preferable.

    But when all you can afford is a 24-70mm STIGMA ...

    I actual took a wedding couple out on the rocks for their formals and was
    more concerned with bringing reflectors and stuff than a long lens. If I
    get down that way again soon, and have some time on my hands, I'll maybe use
    a longer lens and get some proper shots of them.
    Thanks for the banter,
    Douglas

    That must be a custom 20D, Doug. You say that image is not cropped -
    but the aspect ratio of your posted image (720 by 362 pixels) is 1:1.98,
    not 1:1.5

    Ok, I'm a nitpicker {:)

    Ask Tony to post his superior shots... of anything ... with any lens.

    I'm more interested in his Paris Match cover shots. There's one below the
    line!
