This photo is of the 2008 Cayman Islands Pirates Festival Cardboard Boat Race. The winners, seen here in the far left corner of the photo on their way back, won the race for the second year in a row. Some teams such as Hadsphaltic (the one in the bottom right corner), were not so lucky. The race took place with the Jewel of the Sea and her passengers visiting Cayman Islands for the festivities.
Strobist Information: Canon 30D, 85mm f/1.2L II with natural light. Post processing included desaturating the blues so the teams and their boats stood out.
