Water Ski Slalom Chichester

Water Ski Slalom Chichester
The Shot

And now for something completely different. This is a scan of a slide I took in 1993. It goes back to my early days of Photography and Sports Photography. I had approached a Water Ski Club at old gravel pit lakes near Chichester West Sussex, UK. I just asked to go in a tow boat to take pictures in return for prints, they said yes and I returned several times for great picture opportunities like this.

The picture at that time would have been taken with a Minolta Camera and Zoom Lens, probably set at 200mm for this image.

The Scanner is the Nikon Coolscan 5

Adjustments were made in Topaz and Photoshop to enhance detail and contrast.
Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
