I have just bought the Fuji 5900 so that when I loose it to the sea my heart will not sink again so much. I used the x2 digital on the camera to give me 600mm although I did loose some quality on the shots I found that I can get even further into the waves at the angle that I love to capture. It has given me a new insite into my wave shots that I have been looking at full frame shooting.
Take care Richard.

I almost can not believe this is a true shot!
Wonderful! How can I talk about the choice of pov here? :-))
I love the 'glacier like' color of the wave, it looks like frozen and than the foreground tells us that it's about movement.
Bravo, and take care...

Great shot, you have really captured the engergy of the wave and the colour is amazing. You can't tell it's X2 digital and although there is a little noise I think it adds to the effect.

What I can say... great composition and colour: you capture dthe right moment.
Even if you used the digital 2x... the quality it isn't so bad: great job.
See you soon...

Your images are so wondrous .. all of them have much in common and yet each is a unique view of an alien world .. the power .. tone .. textures .. of this are all so wonderful .. and all that is amplified by that curve of the water.
plimrn (21344) 2007-03-31 6:52
I'm glad you added your shots to the surfing theme, they are all outstanding and I will get to all of the them, but this one is my favorite!! It resally feels like being tubed!! The light is wonderful. Wishing you health, Love & joy, Pat

This is not a wave, man, this is the monster that came from the deep, but wow, what definition, what colors...WHAT WAAAAAAAAAVE.

Good morning Richard,
Whenever I feel tired and overwhelmed and need a breeze from the ocean, your gallery began to be one of my favourite stops.
I enjoyed travelling among these gorgeous tides and waves, all reflect another amazing POV and color.
I don't know how you manage to take these photos. On a kayak, during surfin, from the shore? Must be dangerous and your camera must be a waterproof one also.
Anyway I enjoy these artistic curve composition with always an unbeliavable and unexpected light among them.
