    Hi !

    Here's a few from last weekend taken at the Neilson River Race, the opening event of Québec's Extreme White Water Series of races. The water level was perfect to get some great shots but quite high for some of the paddlers, hence the limited number of participant this year but it was still really thrilling and fun to photograph.

    ...and the pics.

    Starting with a series of four taken from a 22 pics burst shot at 11 fps, so 1.98 seconds from punching the wave at the top of the Double Drop to the recovery in the bubble bath at the bottom.

    All of these are quite interesting! I still like best the one you chose to lead with. I think it’s got special compositional elements.

    Great work! I particularly like the third shot (#27)--great facial expression and body movement.
