A great picture, and a funny story - I hope! Thinking of the camera, is it doing okay? Our family will have vacation on the beach this summer, so I need to learn how to take best care of the camera there. #5523140

Michael, I found my way here :) You may regret me wandering over! LOL I really like this one. Your subject is really eye catching. The light play on the waves creates a lot of depth. So much so, I keep wanting to see this tiny little surf boarder riding the pipeline of the circular wave, (My imagination got a way with me for a second) Anyway, the composition is nicely placed within the frame. I love your stop action capture of the water spray. Really, really nicely captured! #5525268

Marvil J. LaCroix 2/21/2008 5:00:32 AM

I love the color and composition, too.
Living on the shore of Lake Superior, I know how those waves can captivate you. One is just mesmerized by their power.
Great work here, Michael. #5525539

Marvin A. Rivera 2/21/2008 5:06:51 AM

Hello to all who have given some of your precious time to respond here. The successful reception this image has received has really been overwhelming. I have not even been here a month yet and just to look over the list of fellow photographers who have responded here (and on many of my other images as well) is such a joy for me, it's hard to express it. Thank you so much. I really feel like I've found a home here. Not only for my photographic pursuits but as a place to interact with the wonderful individuals here who are as colorful and diverse as the images they create. I look forward to participating in this wonderful exchange. #5537364
