Very well done, Sergei. I like the way that this shows these two men working in unison during this race. Nice details and exposure!

Somebody has to do it, you haven't exactly been a big help lately.

Sergei who?
16 John More   (5/18/2012 10:08:52 PM) me out here.. I have always wondered and often admired the way those guys hang over the side of those boats and control them .. but to me why is the rope so thin?.. surely a thicker one would be much easier to grip. if you captured this shot in a boat.. I will take my hat off to you.. your detail and isolation from the bg of the pair.. is just superb..if it was a telly shot from the land, still nicely controlled and handled .. and trust me I am not just saying that because you are the webmaster!.

#16 John More: No rope on boats. Lines. :) You need thin lines to make up for chubby sailors :0

#11 Sergei Samus(Serega to friends):

Nice shot. (On a personal note I want to thank you for the fitness videos. They were an inspiration for me to loose 25 pounds and start exercising again.)

guilty, I agree
19 Sergei Samus (Serega to friends)     (5/19/2012 2:46:10 AM)
#16 John More: John, the lines should be thin, soft and light for better control and less weight. The gloves being grippy and help a lot. Nick never wears gloves, he says he has "yellow hands" :).
The shot is taken from a rescue boat. I specially hired a 200-400 f/4 3.5 kg lens for this event. Added to 1.5 kg body it makes 5 kilos. Hand-holding this "construction" for 5-6 hours on a moving boat makes you completely exhausted in the end of the day :)

#17 MJFerron: Mike, you made my day with your fitness story :)) I am so glad you for you. 25 pounds sounds serious. Keep it going though. Once started you can't stop :)
