Crashing wave at sunset C&C (1 img)
Sep 25, 2012

Took this last night at sunset sitting near some worn down concrete wave breakers.

I normally hate tilted horizon pictures, but I think it really helps convey the action of the situation. It seems visceral to me, like the viewer is being hit by the impact of the wave himself. I love the blue/orange contrasts and the lighting in general.

I've really come to love this picture, but a few people I've showed it to weren't that enthusiastic, so I thought I'd get an opinion here.

Pentax-A 28mm 2.8 on a K5.

Picture is uncropped, most editing is for exposure balance (original was underexposed to preserve sky) with a little bit of saturation enhancement and a touch of contrast.
