going through some old pictures of our trip to Puerto Rico. This is one of my all time favorite shots of a surfer in Luquillo in 2008. Shot with my first Nikon, a D80 and a 300mm zoom lens from the balcony of our rented condo, it captured the drama and strength of the surfers skill.

Seems to me you had a great angle for that shot from your condo balcony that allowed you to get this shot. Then you nailed it. Most surfing pictures seem to come from above or from the beach with a few from the water but this was a different angle that really caught the moment. Nice work!
