Very cool. You surly have waited for the waves, but you're also pretty lucky the the foam's shape is somewhat similar to the rock-"fingers" in the background. Good work.

Superb. I like the cold toning, it plays very well with the black sands and the leaden sky.

Edit: typo correction.

Lovely tonal range on this one. Captures the feeling of that location very well. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed it :) About the foreground patch, that is not foam, it's wet sand - I noticed that after waves retreating the sand was staying wet long enough to take a photo of it, and I waited patiently for quite some time until I found a spot where the wet sand got a shape I liked, a shape that mirrored somehow the shape of the sea stacks in the background... no luck involved, not this time at least: just observation, pre-visualisation, (very) patient wait, and speed in setting up my shot before the wet patch dried up :)

Fantastic foreground and background.

Thank you very much indeed Paulo, glad you enjoyed it! :)

I really like that. Shutter speed bang on, Iím not so fond of the very misty water thing, I think this is perfect. Colour palette is lovely. Composition really works. Lovely all round.

Thank you very much indeed Martin, glad you enjoyed the water treatment and everything else here :) Personally, I don't have a pre-determined approach to shutter speed for water and clouds, and decide on a case-by-case basis according to the scene and the mood I am after: on a scene such as this, I definitely think that keeping shutter speed in the 10-15 seconds range gave the best results in keeping the waves textures while not being too "documentary" ;)
