Nice pics...well, pretyy nice as far as an overcast day and long distances are concerned.

I kitesurf and take pics. Are you bold enough to get in the water up to your waist? I do it with the k100d and get great shots.

Also, sometimes the w20 gets strapped to the kite ansd set to interval mode. I set it to take 1 shot every 15seconds. You get a lot of crap shots but a few beauties!

cheers

No way...
My K100D is going nowhere near the water!

I took these from the car park just behind the beach.
Taken with a vivitar 70-300mm manual focus lens and a 2x TC....
I'll get some more pictures up here soon....
Glad you like them.

I'll add a few, just for fun.

These were taken yesterday with my K20D and a Super Tak 135mm f/2.5. JPGs from camera, no PP (other than resize).

Wide open, ISO 200, 1/4000s:



Stopped down a bit, 1/640s:





100% crop of that last one:

Oh, nonsense! Yours inspired me to go out and get my shots, so thanks for starting the thread!

Just blame the Cornish weather. Maybe you could Photoshop some sun in there?

Exactly the same with me. Read original post and remembered that I have some kite surfing pictures taken long time ago (1,5 years ago) which I never processed
