definitely the best use of HDR style RAW processing i've seen in a surf image yet, nice work. Its vibrant but not beyond the realms of possible...!

Never before has a surf pic made me think of the after session beer. Well done.

well, thats me told....! i wasn't meaning to sound negative about using hdr processing but this seemed to have a similar feel, obviously it was just a very special moment of light...! nice work.

Thanks James! Actually, there is no HDR processing in this image and it was shot as JPEG. I never shoot RAW with surf. If you can't get it right out of the camera then you don't know what you're doing.. Obviously there's been post-processing in this image, but only minor ones, white balance, some more contrast and some more blacks, that's about it.. Glad you like it though:)

Begins to look surreal after staring at it for a short time...

Good photo of a little boy who is scared to come out of the closet. If you stay in there forever, the opportunity will pass and all the lads will laugh at you anyway. Just cum on out of there and it will be ok.
