Splash!

This shot took some patience. Not only was it difficult to time where the wave would crash - many crashed on top of the rock, instead of right before - but the crashing waves were few, and with the tide going out, were becoming less and less intense. After a few minutes, I began to notice patterns of 8-10 small waves followed by 3-5 large waves, so I set my timer up and set the camera to continuous shot, and after about 50 outtakes, got a shot I was happy with. There's a lot going on in the shot - see the notes. I'd love some comments - how'd I do, and what could I have done better with the scenario I had?
