These are the very first action photos i have taken. I spent ages in the cold snapping away.Half of the photos were blurred, some were so far away, the ones i have submitted i feel were some of the best, and i was very pleased with my first attempt. I shot in various modes all trial and error and i must admit i feel i cheated somewhat as some were taken in action mode. :oops: :oops: Some in normal mode :) . I hope you like them, sue

Hi naniani,

wow..talk about action shots. Very dynamic stuff! My favorite is No. 4 because you can see more details of the kitesurfer. Not that the others aren't good, but their black suits make them dark blobs.

Either way, you have captured some very exciting moments there!! Nicely done.

Cheers :-)

Hi Nani,

Great job, they are magic. I too prefer no. 4 because of the closeness.

John :)

Lahlah thank you for your kind comments.
I enjoyed watching as much as taking the photos and im definately going to go back again. Perhaps when the weather is warmer and the sky bluer.

Shagrath i bet its a real exciting sport to do, i also would love to have a go.

GCJ thanks for your comments too, i was extremely lucky that he came in close. I waited for ages, and although they start a few yards away, theres a high fence and building next to the beach,not a picturesque location i stood on a concrete run up for the boats etc. :)

hi naniani,

Nice shots, i liked the 4th one not only because its a rather closer shot but infact its very nicely composed nearly perfect by thirds.

i was just wondering what it could have been with a higher f number, cause there is not much to blur anyway, and a little detail of the sea surface could have added a texture to the composition. thats ony my thinking shot is very nice any ways.

Thanks for you comment Joey, i was pleased with the shot. Its a shame that you cant actually get their kites in the picture as well when they are that close, because some of the kites are really very colourful. regards sue :)

#1 love the detail and composition of the shot! this guy looks relaxed! i'd be freaking out if that was me :lol:
#3 Perfect timing provides an interesting angle
#4 nice and zoomed!
#5 Excellent composition at a great point of view, looks as if he's sailing off into the sun set :lol:

Great shots! looks like a fun day!
