  1. Really enjoyed this Master Class and totally understand where I went wrong in You Win.

    A kick in the pants is always better than a pat on the back, thanks again guys.

  2. Ok Guys, I live in Rio and I really prefer to shoot on the beach despite the sun and sand evil combo! Access to the beach tends to be easier than indoor events and soccer/football here in Brazil is just overcrowded with photogs.
    Thanks for the critique, the surf photo was in fact a really creepy situation, so I’m glad you reacted that way. The out of focus photo was taken after 12 hours shooting the footvolley contest, so I got bored and decide to experiment a bit…

  3. Kenneth,
    We all need a kick in the pants from time to time. Since we take extreme pleasure in belittling other people, I take it as a compliment. But myself, I like to be hold and cuddled and told that I’m the best. <- softy.

    All I have to say is that we are extremely envious of your situation even though you can't get into any football matches. It's not a bad consolation prize to be able to sped a lot of time on the beach. Please keep on experimenting and the hand was really creepy… :)
