Got a 24” monitor so thought I’d try a bit of PP on a screen larger than the laptop, just lightened the facial shadows.

Both 200mm @ f8, ISO 200, EV-0.7 and 1/1600 1st shot and 1/2000 for the 2nd
I still need a longer lens for surfing, my Nikkor AF 70-300 does not auto focus on the D40x.

Buddy, get off my wave :x

Hmmm :D

I'm a fan of shooting surfers as well. Best investment that I made? Sigma 150-500mm. Damn good when the light is right.

P.S. I'd post a photo but they've decided that SmugMug isn't a site that we should visit while working :(

I've been looking at the Sigma 150-500mm, looks good value for surfing. My wife recently gave me the 18-200mm and this week the monitor and is not to to happy I want more, I've already mentioned the D7000 to her. Although we have 30+ kilometers of beach here, for me to shoot 5-6 times a year I have to ask myself do I really want it, I'm looking for a used one.

Love to see your shots.

Cheers
