Wet Feet

View On Black To really get wet!!


O.K...So I'm not one to do many B&W images as you can tell by a quick search of my photostream, but as soon as I uploaded this to my laptop, it screamed to be converted to B&W.

Some minor tweaks & a little dodging & burning & voila!!!

As for the making of it, the sky had started some great orange fireworks in those clouds & this was all I had for a composition, I was adjusting my filter, with one eye on the surf & out of nowhere comes a wave thats like twice the size of any others, before I know it I've got white water to the thigh, I'm hanging onto my tripod & this is what I ended up with...What a rush!!

Canon 50D & 10-22@16mm

3.2sec@f18. ISO100. CPL & 3stop Rev GND.

Hope you like it!!
