I love this set. Shot 2 is awesome!

I was tempted to share this post with on facebook so that others can appreciate it... but given your distaste for facebook Matt - I won't unless you specifically tell me it's okay.

no worries either way - fab set again!

It's OK, Marko, if you are so inclined. I just think that Facebook is a seemingly harmless social network, but has undercurrents that could make participants grasping for the paddle, and struggling to come up for air. The potential for abuse on such a vast and all encompassing network is just too great. Since I am not a friend of advertising, I have a bitter taste in my mouth when I see adds for specific things popping up when I browse, things that normally would not pop up for sure (how many adds for Gimbal Heads do you think are placed randomly???). Anyway, be my guest ... go wild .. live on the fringe .. :D

Yeah! Shot two FTW! I love that all you can see his the two hands. Excellent capture.

Shot 2 is the winner for me too. I like them all though.

Like every one of these action shots, but I'll be different.
LOVE that last shot for the moment you captured. Every person is reacting/interacting in this one, and it shows so well in movement/facial expressions. Some leaning forward in anticipation of the drop, and those in the front leaning waaaaaaay back away from definite danger of the rushing water, as the guide in back looks on to read the water below the drop. Excellent timing Matt.
