Sports Photo Competition 2013 No 1 : Entry Number 120

Judges Comment

Nice image, good timing before the inevitable....this image just needs more dramatic lighting to finish it off...the light is very harsh which is a little distracting, If thats your friend kayaking, ask them to do it at sunrise or sunset (as long as its not too dangerous!) to get the dramatic light....i'm sure they won't mind the sacrifice to get you an award winning shot :-)... Still, a dynamic image and great subject/backdrop. Well done.

Photographers Comment

Thank you very much for the Mark of Excellence. This shot was taken at Ohiopyle Pa. Each year, experienced kayakers are given a brief period to plunge over the falls. Shot with a D700, 85mm 1.8.
