Checking the surf conditions over at New Zealands best surf site I was stoked to find one of my photos had been put into their top 10 of 2008! And according to the text I have now officially achieved the status of a full-on pro-level surf photo taker :)  Though they did lighten it up somewhat from original. What’s your view? Better lighter or darker? (original photo shown below).  Look out for some new improved pics up soon as am now the proud owner of a proper piece of glass 300mm F2.8.
