Taken in Huntington Beach during my week from hell. Rain, Hail, Lightning storms, getting beat up in Venus Beach, losing my camera to save a girl in the sea. Speeding ticket from hell. It was a &^$# week , bar meeting some DPC'ers who where amazing.

A fitting end to my poor 50D
And F^%$#@ YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS a bloody surf shot , non eye candy shot getting a RED,,,,,, BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~!!!!!


DID I mention, NON eye CANDY!!!!! lolol
((( Just a tad excited, can you tell!!!!))))

~~

Skip it was the 50D. I think when I changed the info on my profile it automatically went to the 7. I changed it. Thanks for pointing that out
~~

bohemka ~~ added the details for you~

Congrats! Do you mind sharing the shutter speed? Amazing capture, and though I'm never near waves, I'd love to know what it takes.

Okay so I think this is a Blue Ribbon shot for the energy, motion, expression, clarity... and just look at the guys face - Priceless. Really a great photograph and almost worth the loss of the 50D. I hope that girl at least said thank you. Cheers!

congrats on figuring out how to use the camera? punching bad luck in the face ;-)

Wahoooo! <-- that's what I'd be saying if I was on the surfboard.

Yipeeeeeee! <-- That's what I am saying in response to your awesome image and the well deserved ribbon. :-)

This is a pretty neat action shot (great image flow and expression by the surfer), but it's really the left third of the image that my eye is really attracted to. There's amazing detail and subtle color variations in the curve of the wave there that I find supremely pleasing.

Love this! The composition is beyond perfect. My eyes follow the water rising up, and then crash down with the surfer in a never ending loop. I could stare at this picture for a very long time. Also great expression captured! 8
