    Wow! they're hooking up kites to anything now! I was mesmerized by a kite surfer a few weeks back in virginia beach. Cool to watch them jump and then just hang that extra couple seconds.

    It's amazing what I can get with my 100-400 lens rolleyes1.gif

    It was shot at Brancaster beach on the North Norfolk coast, about the only place left to play in England, :cry The local authorities are banning it 'cos its dangerous.

    I got a call from this guys partner asking if I had any burst shots of Mark (AKA Kenny as is in South Park). She wanted to give him a photo for his birthday. I managed to get the picture up to 36" long but there is too much movement so he is not sharp enough :cry. But at 24" it is sharp enough. The largest size on Smug mog is 2000 PX

    Woo! Stan, that's a terrific shot. Looks like a ballet in the air.... men on puppet strings! That's excellent stuff.

    Ya know, it wasn't until after i posted last night that I realized this was a composite... it's the same guy. 11doh.gif Doesn't matter though, it's a really compelling image. Nice work, I really like the pattern.

    Thanks Wxwax should have leveled the horizon though. I didn't notice it until I sent the picture headscratch.gif
    I think I need a check list of steps to tick off in PS postwork cos I always see some glaring omission when it is too late

    I've never seen them buggy jumping with the kites, but I have seen lots of surfers using them:

    Too much glare and I had to crop out several kites to reduce the width of the shot (which would've made the kites even smaller). I had I think a baker's dozen in the original shot.

    I also got this one by itself that afternoon (yeah, needs some work but I still like it):
