Our pro’s ver­dict…

Freestyle kayak­ing is a very tricky sport to pho­to­graph as there are so many vari­ables to con­tend with, but Gwen has done a su­perb job. This is a strik­ing, eye-catch­ing shot. The tight com­po­si­tion helps to draw the viewer into the im­age, and this is aided by the shal­low depth of field. Gwen has timed the shot per­fectly: there’s a good mix­ture of splash and fa­cial ex­pres­sion as she cap­tures the kayaker gasp­ing for air as he sets him­self up for the next trick. It con­veys a real sense of ex­cite­ment, too, and has been ex­e­cuted with a high de­gree of tech­ni­cal abil­ity. Well done Gwen!
