I used to race Jet-Ski's (back in the day! :lol:) and would have loved to have shots like this from my races.
The 1st one brings it all back, setting up for a turn whilst trying to keep it flat. Excellent!
I hope you get good sales from your efforts. :thumbs:
The rich hues in the sky make both shots. I particularly like the low POV in the second shot making the structure push up into a silhouette. Compositions are hard to fault.
Great job! :thumbs:
Given that the image has a good composition and exposure it should really work either as a colour or B&W image.
Your B&W edit has revealed that their is more detail in the cloud so you could pull this out on the colour image as well which would improve that image.
Good B&W's usually have...

This is the trouble you are having here, your choice is to either render the sun and sky or attempt to hold detail in the...
Great image with the light working well for me.
The darker area to the left does make the image look a bit heavy to that side but that is a (very) small crit.
Your scene is not level. You can check this by using one of the high points of the tree and it's reflection - they should be exactly...
You have the composition right :thumbs: but the exposure was always going to be the problem here.
In getting an exposure that renders the entire scene in an acceptable way you have lost detail in the darker areas whilst still having highlights to deal with.
Remember, the eye is always drawn...
Now it is funny that you want more off the sky as I was wanting the horizon to be MORE central (but cannot crop further without losing balance elsewhere) as this makes the picture more neutral in my view. My thinking being that the "blown" highlights create the drama and the...
I enjoyed a great little flight from Kingston beach to Portsoy on the Moray Coast along with two other paramotor pilots on Saturday past.
Many more images were taken but for some reason these three remind me how much I enjoyed the flight.
