[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot I took many years ago with my Pentax K1000 on 35mm film and more recently scanned it and uploaded it to computer. I used to take my motorbike on holiday to Scotland in the fall and drive around taking shots (photographic not alcoholic)This was a shot taken in the evening in the vicinity of Loch Lomond.

Hi David,

When I first looked at this I thought it was taken late in the day, the blues are wonderful. This is a nice contribution to the theme and a really good scan. The scenery and skies make a nice background to the windsurfers. In many ways I miss using my K1000, but I'm pretty much hooked on digital now.

Best regards,

merhaba David..
ne güzel bir konpozisyon, buralarda da sıkca yapılan bu spor harika olmalı, selamlar

Hello David,

A very well composed shot with good perspective and certainly a sense of action.
Scanned shots often display a grittiness which can probably be lessened in PS. I will have a go in a w/s.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi David
beautiful tones. great capture of action at twilight time. wonderful sportive mood.
good results of pp work with an old photo.
perfect for theme.

Hi David,
Good shot for the theme - Quite a strong purplish presence here. Nicely composed, the details look clear and sharp too. The sky is borderline OE, but looks like you've controlled it well. Great job - Especially for a shot you took 17-years ago!!


Bonjour David,

Nice contribution to the Friday Theme. Effectively, windsurfing is a lot of work and action. Image looks sharp and well exposed. But un bit magenta. Was it actual colors? Or could it be monitor misadjustment? TFS


Buen momento de esta competicion
Buen trabajo
