    Parasurfing

    Recently on vacation, thought I'd practice something I rarely do- moving targets. Saw a couple of guys parasurfing about 100m off shore.

    My wife insisted I focus on the better looking of the two. Worrisome... as from that distance I wasn't certain if they were guys or girls. Anyway, here's my effort. Any C&C welcome, esp. pp suggestions

    1/1500 sec
    ISO 800
    f 4.0
    420mm
    Spot metering

    I suspected some Sister-of-Eve might just look past the photography to something beyond. Thank goodness my wife makes some exceptions.

    Being a close neigbor to the north, I'm certain you realize this fellow represents a somewhat pathetic example of the American male, and we would consider him sadly unfortunate. But in case you are feeling charitable, I'll add one image that I didn't include because of the soft focus: you may not mind

    I have a question. Did you know these guys? Did you get their permission to post their images online? How does that work with not-for-profit photography?

    You cannot copyright your face (or your person). These images were taken in a public place. No permission is required to publish them.

    I don't want to get into a long thread that hijacks Kevin's thread, but the issue of permission to take pictures much less publish them varies widely from country to country even in a public place. I have read many times, as an example, that what might be perfectly legal in the U. S. might be perfectly illegal in many European countries.
