Neil,

nice capture. I might suggest trying a crop just over the mountains. The wave and the bird at the bottom are the best part - the sky and flying birds distract a little from it. Either way, nice capture.

Wow, NeilGreat drama is obvious there in your capture...Kind of the more you observe the more you are drawn in by !! I'd also like toadd that it makes a great subject for oilpainting, as well(don't you find, Bynx)

The seagull is so cute too, : ) Yet my only concernis that; obstracting thegreat splash, ittends tobe abit distractive, IMO! Therefore I assigned it somewhere more complimentary for the subject matter. I also shifted the emphasize of the lightingslightly to where the actual drama is taking place..Hope you don't mind : )

Neil

Great photo! A real feeling of power, etc!! Love the composition too.

I think Bahadir has done EXACTLY what I would have done... moved the bird (well done!) and cropeed a bit from the top as JohnG suggested.

The colour of the wave DOES look quite unusual.. maybe it's my Australian bias for aqua coloured "clear" water!!! It adds a twist though.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul
