I was going to post another HDR today – of the underside of Central Pier (Blackpool) – but I didn't have time to finish it so you'll need to wait till tomorrow for that one. In the meanwhile I raided the archive and found this one: taken back in January of last year at the same time as this one.

These wind surfing jockeys always make good shots, we have a number my side of the coast, great subject, nicely cropped...

Great toning and framing on this. Reminds me of something I got in 2006! http://explosif.org/index.php?showimage=191

I really like the symmetry of this image as well as the toning. The large amount of white space makes it calming, quite fitting given the subject.

Great shot. Kitesurfing is so much fun.

It is an exciting image and because I do a similar thing on land, I really appreciate it.
