I really like the energy in the slight crop. Just taking the edge off magnifies the power.
The real star for me isn't here. I love the 'Washed Over' shot you put in the Fuji X thread!
Snappers Choice ... good work, and the crop is a good idea.
Fuji thread ... that's fab, and I love the bit of beach FG.
I'm a big fan of both the original and the crop. Think the crop has the edge for me.
Thank you, guysNice Photo Stan, crop works better and the other picture adds to the mix.
Waves nicely frozen and look very powerful.
I like the way it is not B&W, the slight dirty colouring adds to the power.
Thanks, David.Dramatic and atmospheric. Great work.
Thanks, Pete for the nice words.A bit behind with comments I'm afraid!
Tall: A lovely ICM shot Stan. I prefer the first and there are some lovely tones in there.
Snapper's: What more can I say? A lovely dramatic shot and even better with the sky crop. Love the wall of water shot too.
Cheers, Martin. Now that you mentioned penguins, yes they do!Cleverly caught, how much did you pay them to pose?
If you squint and use a lot of imagination, they look like penguins but the right way up; or perhaps it's just my twisted mind.
Thanks, Alex.The cropped Snappers Choice is a great photo - and the pair of ducks' bums definitely made me laugh
I'm always jealous of someone getting the chance to capture this type of image. The tighter crop from the top enhances the image but was wondering about a crop from the right to remove the smaller wave that dissapears out of the frame
Have you seen them performing before and knew you would get this shot? Perfect timing.
Snappers - That really does show the power of nature. Fantastic shot. However, your 'washed over' shot really nails it for me. I'm envisaging the "Wall" from game of Thrones looking at it, the water pouring over it doing a great impression of the ice from the Wall.

I haven't seen the film either. And I didn;t realise Stormies had boob armour! Not that it works. Every time one gets hit - anywhere - in the wrist for example. They die!
