Another big wave with birds and blue sea. this is a little after the peak of the splash. While the birds seem innured to this sort of thing it's really very pretty to watch.

This is indeed a wonderful shot with the wave adding such drama to this beautiful scene. The shot is nice and sharp. Very nice work.

Great moment. I love these moments. They are like a present. And if you don't use the moment then you are a sinner. And you are not. :) Very well done,

Tom: it would be hard to argue with the kinetic force of this fine seascape. All the elements combine great here in a powerful - and sharp - shot. regards, c

very nice contrast between sky & water. The splash is perfect and the power is well caught here.

What a good image, crystal clear and good to know what shutter speed caught this.

Hi Tom. And what a splash! It does provide for a nice backdrop for the rock and the birds and picks up the sunlight beautifully. Well done. Regards. Klaudio.

I was sitting in a graduate music course once when one of the students stated this old joke about the composer Vivaldi .. "He wrote the same concerto 500 times" .. and without missing a beat the instructor while writing something unrelated on the board said .. "Yeah, but is was a damn good concerto"
All of these images are so wonderful and well worth it. Somehow the centered composition of this really adds to the effect .. really wonderful palette of blues as well .. and the crisp sharpness of it is just striking,

Nice details, sharpness and great color. Really cool effect capturing the spray off the crashing wave. Nicely done.
tibervince (781) 2007-01-31 21:53
Very impressive picture.... the sharpness and contrast are perfect... powerfull shot!
nmess (2301) 2007-02-11 15:07
I've often sought to catch the crash of waves on the rocks, but never achieved anything as powerful as this. The catch of the motion is very good, while the birds add life. TFS

Wow! Now this is one after my own heart and really captures the power of the scene. The frozen spray is superb. Do I see a few spots of sensor dust creeping into the sky? I have such a problem with this but I'm not quite experienced enough to clean my own sensor.
dilane (861) 2007-03-26 16:41

Excellent image, nice composition and colors.
broglia (3598) 2007-04-20 10:07
Hi Tom, what fantastic colours - and the detail is just superb. Perfect timing too with that massive wave forming a halo of spray around the rock. Brilliant, Roberto

wonderfully composed with the lighting and shadows well managed making an excellent image contrast.
Atousa (7131) 2007-04-29 2:20
A fabulous shot indeed !birds ,rocks and wild waves are all beautiful elements of this image.
belido (19934) 2007-04-30 10:13
Very well composed. Good choice of high shutter speed. Very nice image.
PTAH (287) 2007-04-30 23:00
Spectacular deepness of blue water is what stopped me to comment the picture. The colour is perfect for the scene which looks as if birds were fighting the nature! Excelent capture! How many tries did it cost?
To be this a critique, I would have probably removed a bird on the far left, looks like a distracting dot more than a bird. Does not add up to the scene.
Angelillo (9374) 2007-05-28 17:01
It's not easy to select one of your shots. There are many very beautiful. This one is very suggestive, the force of the water, the mix of colours, the very intense blue in the waters. It's a great shot made of light, colors and force (the force of the life, the force of the nature). Congratulations.

Belle image. J'aurai juste décallé le rocher sur la gauche.

Beautiful Colours of this fantastic shot.
Lightings are good.
Kevin64 (138) 2008-11-18 7:53
What a crisp and vibrant capture! I am there when I look at it. It has a surreal feeling and you've used the fast shutter and crisp light to your benefit to create an immediate experience. I'm curious about how you got such contrast. It's almost artificial looking. Loved the capture. Thanks for sharing.
