Permagrin, I don't want to surf with great whites at all. most of the bites at the inlet happen in dirty water and the shark mistakes a hand or foot for a fish ,clamps down and realizes it's not a fish and lets go. the surfer has 10 or 15 small puncture marks and needs 20 or 30 stitches.

Great Whites usually take an entire leg or a chunk out of your torso.. And the mean part about Great Whites is that they attack more than once..

Kem,

Here are the guidelines for posting:

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=51050

Did you shoot the images in RAW format? Those will be too large to upload.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Hi Kem, I posted the shark topic here after I saw you on Fox News.

If you email me your images, I'll get them online here so we can see some bigger crops. Thanks!

Here are the 100% crops from Kem's photos. Kem told me that he used his 70-300 with center spot for focusing on the surfer that has been cropped off which is why the shark isn't in focus.

That settles it for me. I see no evidence of PS.

If that's a Photoshop job, it's the best I've ever seen.

Nice pics, Kem.

If the images are larger than 150 K, then you could host them on your web site and then put an img tag in your post that will cause the image to be embedded. Here is the format for the tag:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


It is important to have the two tags:
IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE
at the beginning and end of the URL of your image. If you do not know the URL of an image that you have uploaded to your site, it is easy to find out what it is -- simply right click on the image and then select "Copy Image Location" from the pop-up menu. Next, go to the post that you are writing and choose the point in your message where you want the picture to appear by clicking there ... then type the opening image tag "
IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE
". There is also a tutorial at the following link:

If you're serious...I shake my head.

Really, why would anyone fake this and risk globally making themselves looks like an idiot? Would all those news stations report it if it was a fake photo? Don't you think they checked into it? How about all the witnesses that saw it? Are they all imagining the same thing?

I, from the start, have not seen one bit of evidence to make me even begin to think they are fake.

This is a once in a life time type of photo and Kem was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

scott thanks for posting the crops. some people just don't get it. I guess I'll have to drag them to the beach, paddle them out on a surfboard and let them experience our sharks for themselves. Have one jump close by and scare the pants off them to get the point across.
2 of the largest sharks experts on the country are saying the photos are real. That's good enough for me. But I took the shots, and I am a very honest guy. I couldn't live with myself if they were faked in anyway. I am very proud of these photos and hope everyone out there catches that very elusive right place at the right time moment.I did!!! So enjoy them or not it's your choice.
thanks guys what a great forum. I will be back soon.

Kem, that is one awesome set of pictures! Thanks for sharing and participating.

At the risk of being tacky, can I ask what kind of money those pictures might fetch? (everyone else is thinking this, I might as well be the one to ask).
