This is a gorgeous capture, I love it when water looks like water! You've caught the wave brilliantly.

I took it into Photoshop Elements 9, and gave a small tweak in 'Enhance > Adjust Lighting > Levels', this really brought out all the wonderful colours in the water and rocks. I then took it into 'Quick Edit' and gave a little adjustment in 'Midtones' and 'Highlights'. Just a tiny bit of 'Sharpen' and there you are. Smile I hope you think I've slightly improved it - to be honest you had a good shot to start with, all I've done is made very small adjustments! Smile

Looks like Karen just beat me to it. You have caught the action nicely and well done for persevering until you got the result you were after. A bit more contrast and sharpening just helps the water to pop more as in my mod.
Keep up the good work.

Thank heavens - sharp water - fed up with the creamy stuff. Improvements already as above - a bit of contrast and sharpening to add impact. The problem for me is is lack of focal point - the picture is the whole frame - based on the foam of the wave.
