Photographer's Note

Sunday mornings here at Narrabeen Lake the local kayak club runs races around a set course. These two guys were really battling it out, theyíd been neck and neck for most of the course. Unfortunately the finishing line is around the corner and I didnít get to see who won. Pity, they both put in a great effort.

I really need to move up to a DSLR with a long lens attached. Iíve stretched my fixed lens Olympus 8080 to the limit here, (hope not too far for TE members). What this shot needed was a much longer focal length lens. To combat that Iíve cropped the action I wanted from a much wider shot and itís a big crop. Iíve used sharpening and noise reduction to improve the image, but for 8 mega pixels itís a big ask.
