I captured this image with the intention of showing the speed at which the boats zigged and zagged on the way into Tortuguero National Park. I was in a similar boat trailing behind it and I used a slow shutter speed of 1/25 sec and a small aperture of f/16 to achieve the look I wanted. The challenge was marking sure the boat stayed sharp while still catching the motion of the jungle and the water.
