    This shot was taken on the Delaware River in New Jersey. The water was 50 degrees, but this guy could care less - he was having a blast!

    Thanks Frank!
     
  4. Curious, that looks like you took it using a prime (If i'm reading your List of lenses right)

    If so, How did you add the zooming blur afterwards?
     
  5. Excellent action capture Fred, I could accept a framed copy anytime :wink:

    Very good
    Is that the zoom filter in PS by chance
     
  7. Great action shot, and perfect treatment to convey the feeling...

    As an aside, I love to see white-water kayakers wearing brain buckets.
     
  8. Cool shot neat technique I like it from one New Jersian to another

    Yea, all post processing in PS. I used the 18-55 lens for the shot.

    Thanks Panos. $25 for 5x7 matted........:wink: Just kidding. I am flattered though.

    Thanks Gale. Yes exactly - you hit the nail on the head. Also selective color using the art history brush

    Thanks! This guy was 19 years old, and he was fearless. There were rocks all over the place AND he was hitting his helmet on the rocks. Glad I was on the side with my D50. :smile:

    Many thanks Mike. You are about 25 mins from me....very cool. :smile:
