Now, I know you critics out there are going to say, boy this image is soft. But consider the conditions under which this was taken.
A900 w/ Tamron 70-200 @ 200mm, f/2.3, ISO-400, 1/1000 second
Taken through dirty, tinted, train window with train moving at about 55-65 mph and surfer about 200 yds away. All considered, not bad ... other than the fact I had to work that day and would much rather have been on that beach having to "endure" the "hardship" of photographing surfers.
Zooms: Tamron SP AF70-200mm f2.8 Di LD Macro; Sigma 28-90mm D macro, Konica-Minolta 18-70 f3.5-5.6
Primes: Minolta 28mm f2.8; Sony 50mm f1.4
Minolta RC-1000 remote commander
Calumet Cambo CC400 4x5 View Camera

Minolta Maxxum 7000
w/ Minolta 35-80mm f/4-5.6 & Minolta 2800 flash

nicely done. although you lost the rich yellowy/ gold somehow in the second image. the yellow in the adjusted version looks quite muted and flat.

I should have done this with layers. Then I could have brought back the bright yellow. I always work without thinking. I tried a few different edits but I didn't post them all here. They are on my Flickr site.
