Good tcht 2006-03-03 15:00

Hello Torben,
Very good shot of a flatwater racing kayak! I agree with Ebbe about the nice diagonal line of the paddle & this person.
However I'd prefer this to be zoomed out more so the whole boat's captured - or maybe wait until his paddle is being lifted up - thus you can freeze the water being lifted out by his paddle, making this more action-oriented.
A good attempt!
Btw...I'm a kayakist myself - will be having a 30km race this Sunday :)

Default To tcht: good luck...

with your race, it's a very graceful sport.
You are correct, that the image would get better with mote swirling waterdrops to suggest motion. On the other hand, I like the way he looks at the camera from under his paddle.
I chose the tight crop instead of a more zoomed out view, to concentrate more on the mans stare, I thought that this intensity was more interesting. Thank for your thoughtful critique I appreciate it very much
