Now this shot turned out to be very lucky and the last shot taken with my Legendary best friend, the 350D...
2 sec after the shutters closed and opened again, and without paying close attention to my surroundings, both my trusty old friend and I got ambushed by an unsuspected wave, which drenched me and at the same time pulled my tripod and camera with it back into the ocean...

Canon 350D
Lens: 18mm
F: 22
1.6 sec
ISO: 100
Touched up in Photoshop, with brightness and
Contrast, Levels, and Curves for the final touch.

...I managed to catch 1 of the legs of the tripod and pull back what belonged to me, but I was too late. My old 350D has seen its day. Luckily it blessed me with this stunning shot and the splashes on the lens explain clearly what hit us straight afterwards!
Danie is my witness ;)

Hi Gustav, good thing you are not in the running anymore (now being Photo Critic Staff) because this is a stunning image and competing at this level would be simply unfair.. ha ha.. lovely shot.

Hi Mike, got myself with a 600D. Super impressed with it so far! Got it, because I do extreme mountain biking, so amped to film our sport too. But that shot of mine, with the vineyard and the texture overlay, that is my 1st shot with the new camera and its AMAZING! Can feel and see the difference form the old 350D ;)
