    From The Editor

    What separates one photographer from the next, one whitewater kayaker from the next, one surfer from the next and on and on and on? The word that comes to mind is anticipation. It is the anticipation OE Digital Photography  Outdoor Eyes of what is about to happen that takes a person to that next level of accomplishment. Why do you sometimes gasp for air when you see a powerful photograph or a surfer that catches a 25 foot wave only to carve his way out of the impact zone. The photographer is no different than the surfer. The photographer anticipates when the sun is going to emerge at that perfect moment from behind the clouds the same way that the surfer anticipates when the wave is going to peak and break. The anticipation of that exact moment differentiates the caliber of one photographer's photograph against another, even if the two photographers were at the same location at the very same time. How do you rate your anticipation?  Top

In all honesty I know nothing about the technicalities of the photographic process.

I take it home to relive the evoked moment at will.  Top
