I only just caught this wave as you see it. You postion your camera were you think it will break and you always capture the second best photo and when the exiting one comes along you miss it.Is it not true for all nature shots? Let me know of some of your near misses? Thankyou Richard.

It's a perfect shot with a nice composition. I'm really enjoying this collection of your photos.

Yes, Richard, I agree with Dari, if this is your miss... Very unusual light here, the water is captured gorgeously. Looks more like a painting than a photo I'd say...

Hi Richard, what a fabulous shot. And such incredible colours, especially the copper and green on the face of the wave. Exceptional ! Regards, Roberto

I am adding my praises to the crowd...
but they have said it all already...so I'll just add my impression: the vawe looks like some hungry beast spitting flames, about to devour everything in its path...
Excellent picture, thanks for sharing.

This is an amazing shot. The movement and power of the water, the colours,...

This is an amazing POV, how could you get this close from the wave to catch it like this?
And besides the great moment you caught it, it is rather unusual to see such colours in a wave. In the end, it looks like a painting more than like a photo

richard, well...for sure i would not call this capture a miss of an exciting moment. the waves you capture are intense and all with good light/sharpness and strong atmosphere and leading lines. let me know when you cath an exciting moment, i would be interested to see how much better that could possibly be. cheers arnoud

Wow! This is an awesome shot... I was reading something this morning about taking "continuous shots" using the settings on my digital camera and I guess your example here is one of the best for these types of things...
Thanks for sharing!

i'm looking at your shots and are astonished.
only one single critic: the frame.
takes light away from the shot and makes it look as a postcard.

Nice framming and amazing wave... the colors are perfect and I just wish I was surfing it :-D
I also like its near glassy texture... it adds a lot to the quality of the wave...
The only minus is that area underneath the tip of the lip where the image seems a bit blurred... was it water on the lense or whitewater from the wave?
Overall it is very good.

Wow, this is a near miss??? I'd say it looks more like a bulls eye! Powerful composition and subject with gorgeous color.

I've just quickly and silently put my G9 away, it made me fell totally out of TE.
This picture has power. Thank you for sharing.
