Some lovely sea and surfing images


Recommended Posts

Awesome shots, wish I could swim well enough to get right in there and get pics like that.

Awesome indeed.  Something I noticed:

Surfer is (almost) frozen which means exposure time had to be very short, yet stars on horizon appear to be 15 sec or more.  So this is PS manipulation of multiple frames blended together.  So it looks somewhat unnatural

Slow flash (or slow sync flash). I used it all the time in the late eighties and well into the nineties when this was all the rage.

No Photoshop needed.

thanks;   wasn't aware of this technique.  But it still looks unnatural to me because of blurry stars;  it's probably the weakest photo on that otherwise fantastic front page
