Miniature longboarder surfing at Freshwater Bay

There will be more 'Baby Santa shots to come this week, but just so it doesn't get too boring i'm going to break it up with some surf shots today. Here's a few from my latest blog on when i managed to catch a quick surf and a quick go with the camera afterwards last weekend.


I shot from a new point of view up on the cliffs and wanted to see what kind of different results i could get.


I've got a lensbaby, and i've seen, but this was just a bit of a quick and dirty fake tilt-shift in photoshop on a shot taken with a telephoto lens (a feathered selection, inversed, and then a bit of gaussian blur) to see if you think it makes any difference here.


I think the Subbuteo model pose of the surfer was probably the best bit about it, and it looks pretty miniature before the edit anyway, what do you think?
