    Congrats, Lo! For a minute I thought you meant this is what you get to see in Ottawa out back of the Canadian Tire store on your way to your car in the parking lot! If you have a larger view of the scene, I hope you can post it in outtakes.

    Thanks to everyone for the constructive comments - they really are appreciated. From what's been said, it's obvious that I cropped too tightly - that's a great lesson learned for the next time.

Jade, believe it or not, this was shot at Hog's Back Falls, right in the middle of Ottawa. I just visited a Canadian Tire store yesterday, and short kayaks seem to be filling the shelves.

FC- flash wouldn't have helped - I was over 50 feet away from the kayakers on the opposite side of the gorge.

mr sawyer - I'm not sure how focal length is measured - but I did take the photo at quite a distance, and I did crop it quite a lot.

    How did you shoot this with a focal length of 78mm? Where were you in relation to the subject? Great capture!

    Maybe I would have cropped it a bit less, but nevertheless a great shot for the theme!

    Perfect timing. Lots of movement in this pic. In my favorites.

    Perfect on theme. Lots of motion - and action.
I wish I could see more on the left ... for a balanced composition. But still an easy top vote.

    Great capture maybe a flash will have caught some of the spray as well but well done.

    They make short kayaks where you are from? Love the action, but something looks a little unfocused or perhaps some motion blur at 1/800s. I'm very uncomfortable with the dimensions and feel the subject is too tightly framed - I would have preferred more vertical above or below (but not both) or twice more frame to the left and once more to the right (sort of river pano).
