Hi everyone :)

Looking for a little critique on some wakeboard shots. All taken with the 70-200, usually at 70mm because it's really hard to frame perfectly when there's a lot of wave...

#1
ISO 200 F5 1/2000 (I know I should have used ISO 100 to get 1/1000)

#2
ISO 200 F5 1/640

#3
ISO 800 F4 1/2000

In general, when shooting wakeboard, lightning condition changes a lot (sun coming from the back, then 10sec after from the front), it's a real pain trying to shot tight, it moves way to much, and focusing always perfectly is close to impossible, the riders move really fast! I'm using AI servo with center point only, to focus as fast as possible but if the rider is not perfectly in the centre of the frame, the focus goes to the trees behind or the water in front :(

Any tips to improve?

I'm too much of a beginner to give improvement tips but I really like #3. #1 seems to have some noise in the sky but that might be from the lower quality file for the forums.

^^ Thanks :)

Yes the noise is both from the lower quality but it is also a heavy crop. At full quality, you woudn't notice ;)

I like the cropping of the last one, and the fact that he's exposed well despite being backlit, I just wish his expression were more dynamic. Cool set!
