Both surfers are the same guy. The one closest to the water is from another frame. Christmas Eve!

On a nice evening when I'm so inclined to wander out with the camera, I'll drag the tripod to the beach. Poor thing is full of sand... Anyway, that's the only reason I had this option - camera was on tripod and I was just setting it down, waiting around for the sunset, and shooting random things. Got off three clicks of this gent as he headed in for the evening. By using the tripod, I kept the framing exactly the same, and the perspective. When I've tried to do something like this from handheld shots, it never works quite right.

Congratulations on a fine image, Deb. You've framed everything so well and the colors are stunning. ...and I agree about the use of a tripod. I take mine everywhere. (It has a lot of beach sand too.)

Classic under the pier shot. Same guy in both places? Nice work on the sun.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Same guy from two different captures? Nicely done though, well composed and positioned to get the little sun flare.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Just based on subject, this has to be a Deb entry :) Very cool, no matter whose

I'll bet these started off as skiers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/31/2014 07:52:11 AM
im guessing this is a double exposure and thats the same surfer. beautiful shadows and exposure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/31/2014 07:50:40 AM
Same guy, multiple images? If so, I might have had him turned as if speaking to the other in the left image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2014 10:44:38 PM
I'm guessing the rule you broke was date deadline for challenge

Same surfer, double exposure? I like it!
