    I love the colours
    amazing how the waves sepperate the water into red and blue, and I like the different textures in the water.
    Nothing I can mention as suggestion for improvement

    This seems to be the other version of "The Cut"? Nice one, but different mood from "The Cut".

    Hi Yan,

    All shot around the same time - just picking the best bits out of what I saw. All 3 were shot with the EF70-200mm F2.8L IS USM; shooting long is oh so much easier than shooting wide - far fewer distractors to worry about

    Colin,

    I also use this lens quite often. But one thing I found a bit difficulty is that since this lens is much heavier than 16-35mm f/2.8L II one, there are more chances to get it shaking on the tripod during long exposure, especially in a windy situation. My tripod is a AUS$120 cheaper one. Can you tell me if you have the same issue for this? Do you recommend to get a good tripod?

    Hi Yan,

    Windy conditions definately make it tricky. If your shooting long then you can try tricks like standing upwind of the lens or even using an umbrella (as a wind-break), but a sturdy tripod is the (literal) foundation of the whole rig.

    We discussed tripods a while back - I STILL haven't seen anyone go one better than my Gitzo 1548
