    Great shots, I like the crop.

    That flip is stunning, it really works for that shot

    Better than nothing I guess, if there's no surf. Surf parks are starting to pop up for those who can't get to good surfing beaches.
    On another note and it's just me having a rant, but I'm not a fan of those wind turbines. Apparently they killed 500,000 birds lately and in a year that will rise to 1.4 million. I guess everything man does takes a toll somehow.

    Never any decent surf on my side of the UK, so they have to make use of kites to get going. At least that means sometimes they come in fairly close:

    I didn't change anything, just let the action run, turned out a treat. Luckily the sun was at about the same position when I took the photo, so no need to adjust for shadows.,

    Good to see the action works! I know folks are using them but rarely get feedback. did you know you can expand the scale of the effect and also drag the centre of the gradient to wherever you want it?

    I had a play with Isac's Sunset action today, very happy with the result.

    With this type of shot a triptych would work great. If just cropping, I would flip it horizontally leading left to right, then crop using ROT, leaving plenty of water to retain a good sense of scale. Just my thoughts

    Thanks for your comments and thoughts Phil. The 3:1 pano looks like it may just work.

    G'day mate

    The surfer looks good to me - excellent use of FF pixels on show here
    If you were to pano it as a 3:1 pano, my thoughts are...

    Hard choice, do I crop to the left or right.

    The surfer on the beach came up great using my sunset action

    20mp ff sensor has plenty of detail for excellent cropping. The OOC image gives a better sense of scale IMHO, but I like the pano too.
