Default A few more surfing pics from Puerto Rico

Here are a few more that I took. These are a little older but were my first series of surf shots. Got me hooked. These were taken at Domes beach in Rincon. Pretty famous surf spot. The Beach Boys have sang about this spot and it has had some international surf contests here too. Please remember that I am a novice so and c/c are not only welcome but needed. Anyway without further ado.

I was born and raised in PR (San Juan area)...the colors of these photographs bring a lot of great memories. Thanks for sharing!

Nice job, love teh colors. I think that #4 is my favorite although the whitewash is a little blown out. Good job keeping all the subjects out of the center!

These would be almost perfect if you just cropped in so that you could see both the surfer and the surrounding water spray. For instance, #2; crop everything but the bottom corner, so that all that's left is the water spray on the left and the blue ocean (no sky!) on the top, and it'll be amazing.



Like this-




Sorry about the huge white outline and add...I don't have much on this computer.
