Boat to boat photography is definitely fun although it has been also a bit challenging for the muscles to manage a long lens shooting hand handle from a floating spot. However I'm pretty happy with my focal length choice as sticking up with 430mm prime has turned out to be a good set up. I did marginal use of wide angle on the second camera when too close to shot with prime. As for the image look I pushed on the shallow depth of field shooting wide open almost all the times. Finally a pretty fast exposure time has helped in freezing action as well as avoiding motion blur due to some camera shaking.
