Wakesurf's up | First prize - Action!

Photo by Cindi Title-Jones

“I’m a mother of four, so my subjects are usually my kids,” says Cindi Title-Jones, who, from the boat, caught Zak, 13, wakesurfing at sunset on Lake Muskoka, where she has cottaged every summer since she was eight. Cindi shoots a lot of action, because the family enjoys watersports, hockey, and downhill skiing. “We’re busy.”

Judges’ comments

We were impressed with the skill level in this category, but what set Cindi’s photo apart was the detail you can see in the wakesurfer. She captured precisely the right moment here, with the sunlight on his fingertips, in his hair, and on the crest of the wake, and there’s a nice flare under his arm. Shooting directly into the sun often results in either a solid silhouette or blown-out white background. Not here.
