A few days ago I posted an image of three surfers headed home from a Southern California competition. Here, for comparison, is¬†another shot from that evening. The exposure time is noticeably shorter and the overall scene is much warmer. I like both shots for different reasons–what do you think?

    Stunning silhouettes against the gorgeous sky. Especially love the sliver of moon in the distance.

    Very nice! I think I hear the surf…and a little surfer music in the distance. Gorgeous colors. The moon adds that perfect little touch.
