I don't do sports photos too much, so any C&C will be very very welcome :wink:

looks a tiny bit oversharpened, but maybe it's just my screen.

Maybe try to get a little closer, as the exprension on people faces when they're rafting can be quite a lot of fun :)
Also the boat seems a little dark, which it shouldn't be since that's the main subject of the picture.

But all in all not a bad shot at all :twisted:

Alex the colours in your photos are always so vibrant... Do you shoot in RAW? How much pp do you generally do (i.e. adjustment for saturation/hue?).

Nice shot! I agree with Noceo, too... I bet their expressions are something else. Ex: the woman in the middle on the near side of the raft doesn't look like she's having too much fun. :twisted:

Thank you all for the kind comments. I really appreciate that :wink:

Unfortunately I couldn't get closer. One step further and I'd be all wet :D

Jaxzwolf, I always shoot RAW and convert to JPEG on DPP. I use an personal Picture Style that has the Saturation with +1 notch. I like the colors better that way. +2 and it will be over saturated. :wink:
Besides that I don't do much PP. Only cropping and sharpening on DPP too (usually +7 sharpness). I'm not very familiar with Photoshop or other Editing tools.

Good to know. I'm just starting to get into editing RAW with the Pentax. I'm not sure I'm particularly fond of their RAW converter, though... it doesn't feel very fluid to me.

I suppose I should give the manual another go. :roll:

Nice snap, but that water looks filthy!
