Default In Contention


I've just been trawling through the club competition shots I took at Yarrawonga, just over a week ago..
This is waterski racing on Lake Mulwala, but these are not among the four images I chose to enter the competition.


The role of the boat in the background was to recover skiers wrapped around tree trunks.

Shot from at least 300 metres with the Zuiko 40-150mm pro +1.4x converter. 1/1600, F5.6, ISO500, 210mm (Full frame=420mm)

"Skiers wrapped around tree trunks"?! That must REALLY hurt!

Intriguing shots. I wonder if they'd gain a little punch if you added some bokeh to the background instead of it being so sharply focused.

Thanks for that, Manikon.
