    Tight race – 100-400mm Canon Zoom at 300mm, f/5.6, 1/3000 sec, ISO 400. In post processing removed one distracting element (small sailboat). Enhanced image with “Levels” tool by removing non relevant pixels on the dark and light side, giving the image a crisper look.

    Sailing on The Reservoir
    ISO 200; f8; SS 1/1000. Converted to Black and White because of haziness. Also applied some dehazing.
    Conditions: very hot bright evening.

  3. Diana says:

    Sailing on The Reservoir
    ISO 640; f8; SS 1/1000.
    Shot taken directly south; sun shining from the west.
    Applied dehazing on this shot as well.

    Every race needs a judge.
    Shutter speed raised in hopes the Cormorant would fly…….but he didn’t!

    ISO 1600; f8; SS 1/2000

    Dehazing added but not as essential due to orientation towards the south and east.
    Also minimized the sky due to haze.

    Looks like fun!

    I think this one might have been done with the “Back lighting” setting on my Canon EOS Rebel t5i. ISO 200, f/6.3, 1/1600.

  7. Ron says:

    ISO 100, f/13, 1/250.

      I love the blue-black fade at the shoreline – along with the pretty blue water, it really makes the bright colours of the sails pop.

  8. Ron says:

    Heeled Over – ISO 640, f/14, 1/500.

  9. Frankie says:

    At the start line. Cropped out four more boats on the right for a more closeup and dramatic look.
    ISO 400, 240mm, f/13,1/1000

    • Henri says:

      Amazing how action and excitement is conveyed by the angle of the sails and the spray. Also the crowded field of contestants gives it a feel of immediacy.

  10. Frankie says:

    Some of the gang looking very picturesque.
    ISO 400, 24 mm, f/13, 1/3200

  11. Frankie says:

    I sent three photos to the Global Weather Window this morning and they used this one, probably because of the variety of boats.
    ISO 400, 240 mm, f/16, 1/1600

  12. Henri says:

    I took this image of the dock and really altered it in Photoshop to reflect the theme that came to mind transporting me back to 1968. Otis Redding’s song “Sitting on the dock of the bay … wastin’ time”. I used a whole bunch of sliders in Camera Raw to get this effect of a grainy faded “bitter sweet” color print.

  13. Henri says:

    Trapeze act – f/8, 1/1000 sec, ISO 400

  14. Karen McDaniel says:

    I shot this into the sun and this is what came out. Otherwise, my pictures were pretty similar to the others considering where I was standing. This effect looks rather old fashioned. Settings: AP, F8, S 1/6400, ISO 320, 150mm, Auto WB, CW Metering; cropped only

  15. Karen McDaniel says:

    This was the first one that I took into the sun. It is only cropped and straightened. Settings: AP, 350 mm, F8, S 1/6400, Auto WB, CW Metering, Again, it has an old fashioned look. I didn’t do anything to the color.

  16. della says:

    300mm ISO 800m1/320 f16

  17. della says:

    ISO 100 1/160 105mm f7.1

  18. della says:

    ISO 160 1/320 f7.1 35mm

  19. Henri says:

    I could not resist, this my 4th and last entry. (Not counting the header image) Again the same subject as my first entry, just better in my opinion. f/8, 1/750 sec, ISO 400 on Aperture Preference +0.5 exposure compensation. Post processed with a bit of clarity and vibrance enhancement then using the levels tool, spreading the histogram over the full spectrum.

  20. Marsha Levy says:

    Three houses and three boats. Cropped the photo a bit to get this focus. There were so many opportunities for interesting photos.

  21. Marsha Levy says:

    Who is racing who? There was lots of action to cover on the water. Thanks for a fun outing.

    Not sure I “Envy” this crew and it doesn’t look like a “JOYRIDE” to me.
    Taken with Lumix GX85, 100-300mm lens (mft) at 100mm (200mm ff), 1/320 sec, f/5, iso 200
    Spoiler alert. Everyone came out of this ok.

  23. Bob says:

    Here is one for those missing the spinnakers.
    GX84, 468mm ff, f/5.2, 1/500 sec, iso 640, cropped

  24. Bob says:

    Correction, Lumix GX85.
