Love the shot Paul, I am so glad you shot into the sun, there are so many photographers who are afreaid to shoot into the sun, lovely capture and lovely editing
That is so gorgeous!!!
Excellent! Great lighting, instant favorite :)
Wonderful capture. You should join Volcanoes, Earths Geology & Atmosphere and enter these wild waves.
Excellent just love the mood.
Awesome shot Paul,love the water dance in the foreground.The shutter speed is perfect.
Cheers Rod, This was a totally experimental shot when I took it, because it was done on medium format slide film and it was so heavily filtered (and because it was looking directly into the sun) I basically had to use guess work for the settings and had no real idea as to whether it was going to work out. As you can imagine, I was very happy when I got the processed film back a couple of weeks later. I still think the thrill of seeing nicely exposed slide film for the first time after processing is far better than looking at images on an LCD screen.
