    Interesting shot this one. If the person was slightly less obscured by the water it would be a cracker.

    that is a good one --- maybe a little more contrast/darken blacks-shadows/clarity (??)

    Effective, and looks like he’s standing on the waves.

    Thanks all, I deliberately processed it to make the shape of the guy barely visible through the spray. I wanted the wave and water to take the stage on this one.
    Cheers.

    Thank you, that's how I hoped it would look.

    Really like this. It really is impressive. There are a number of blow-holes along the New South Wales coast. I have tried to photograph a few of them and it isn't as easy to get a good result as you think it would/should be. I have tried in all lights and all conditions. Nothing anywhere near as good as this. Mostly mine look like a bit of a splash.....and I have photographed in big swell but nothing as dramatic as this. Closei would you mind posting camera settings....tripod or hand held, etc. It might help me in figuring out where I am going wrong. After looking at yours I may need to use a tripod, slow down the shutter speed, close the aperture a bit more and perhaps centre metering.

    Thanks very much I'm glad you like it. Just a couple of points on the picture. I would not have been able to get that result with a colour version and much of the drama I've added in processing. You do need a fast shutter speed to 'stop' the spray like that but it's always a compromise depending on the light at that time of day.

    For what it's worth my camera settings were: 150 mm Focal length, F10, 1/2000 and ISO 400. The metering was centre weighted and the shot is part of a burst sequence. Processed in Nik silver Efex after initial adjustments in PS CS3.

    Just remember to consider your background particularly when shooting spray.. it needs to be dark.

    Hope this is of some help.

    well, it must be a good shelter if he didn't get wet in the end. Thanks for the explanation.
