Scores of people did a "paddle out" to commemorate one of the soldiers
killed in the recent Afghanistan helicopter crash. He was a surfer, and
in an effort to try not to identify people in the picture too well,
I overexposed the image (many there didn't want to be identified
due to their role with the military).
Technical note - this was done by a few stops overexposure and then
I brought down a little bit of the shadows to pull in remaining details.
