I arrived at the beach early in the morning to see a number of stand up paddle surfers in the water. I videoed a few of them, but just photographing a surfer in the water didn’t really capture the whole process of surfing. I thought including the entrance to the beach along with a surfer in the water and a surfer coming out of the water was a more interesting photograph. I edited the photograph for B&W .
Nice composition and I agree with you that just photographing a surfer in the water is a lot less interesting as showing the whole process of walking through the fence posts, carrying the board, etc. It lends itself to a print and more people would like a total composition. I like your choice of B&W for the image.
Persistence pays off in photography. Keep on going back to the same place until you get the photograph you really want.
