Very nice Ben! How far were you from the surfers?

the break I was shooting is weird, some waves break close (~100') and some far (~100 Yards ++) and some break from the outer point to the inner point so it's all over the place. Everything was shot at 400mm though, so never close enough that was a problem...

The angles and scenes are terrific, it's too bad the sun was on their wrong side. With the right light, these would have been even better.

Thanks bud. Geez! Now I think this will better suite my needs, rather than the 70-200..??? :confused:

surfers surf in bright conditions and leave us few places to go to shoot them, so I've given up on getting perfect light a long time ago. :lol: I shoot the better action first, and if I can control the light/angle at all I will, but it's not very often.

for surfing? Yeah, get the 100-400. It'll still be too short, but it'll AF and how often are you going to be shooting when f/5.6 isn't enough with an ISO bump if needed? The first shots on the blog were pretty early in the morning... The 100-400 is GREAT for outdoor/daylight sports, the 70-200 is great when lighting is an issue, but it's short for surfing IMHO. The big name shooters are using the bigger 500 and 600 f/4 primes typically.

#1 looks as if you pushed the crop pretty hard but I like #2...!

Yah I did as the original had something on the left side of the frame and I was too lazy to correct it. So I just cropped the sucker :D

Seen that before- under very rare conditions, the air becomes pixelated. It's always there no matter how far you blow it up, some days it's just a mega problem. :rolleyes:

the "pixelated sky" is noise and it's a telltale sign he's using a 7D... Even at base ISOs there's some noise present, but it cleans up very well. The issue with that shot though is it's a very "healthy" crop I'd bet so you're seeing it look pixelated because it is. I was honestly expecting to see text along with it that said "100% crop"...

Thanks very much...

It's certainly very high in the "Bang For The Buck" quotient.
