Photographer's Note

RE-POST: I've never been happy with the quality of this photo (see below); now it isn't perfect, but at least it's better. I re-processed the raw file with SilkPix (which seems to do a better job with noise) and edited with PS CS3 for noise (again), curves, desaturating reds and sharpening.
Thanks to Truja and Xuaxo for their comments (and WS) on the original post.
This autumn is being warmer than usual, and in fact the month of October has been better than July in my region. Yesterday, with 25ºC, the beaches were full of people swimming, sunbathing and practising water sports. Even though morning and night are cold, I can't recall such warm days in autumn.
In the evening, there was a thick wall of fog in the sea, which suddenly came onto the coast (so thick it really made you wet) and, in a few minutes, went back to the sea again. It didn't discourage these guys who were practising water-ski taking advantage of the windless day. I suspect the skier wasn't very skilled, as he fell down everytime the boat turned.
In the foreground, the Cíes Islands and a ship in the middle of the fog.
The quality of the image isn't as good as I'd like to, as I was shooting inadvertently at ISO 800, but I hope it's still good enough for TE. PP consisted of an overlay layer, noise reduction and sharpness.
I've posted another, more dymamic view of the skier as a WS.
I'd appreciate your comments. Thanks for watching!
