I like this ! Can't see why it's not got more votes - deserves more attention.

It's dark ,yes, but the conttrast of the crashing surf in the deep,velvet blues is very eye catching.

Good one !
Jane

Very nice indeed. The darkness of this gives it just the fear aspect you'd expect of a scene such as this. You can almost imagine yourself on the deck of a lifeboat going to a rescue. I think you need to put a border around this shot as too much of your fine image is lost against the black surround.
Thanks 4 the share Smile

hello,
i have to say there are quite a few details about this i like, the crashing s shaped wave, the foreground detail and unusually the vertical format.

like the others commentors above i understand its probably a conscious descision to leave this a dark shot, broody and all that, but another part of me wants to see the full range of details recorded on the image and in that respect in does not show the full range of tones.- so for better or worse and im not saying that it desperately needs it, i did a mod to see what it would look like with a full range and brighter mid tones.

at this point i noticed it was tinted blue and i didnt know if it was intentional so just out of interest for a comparison i changed it to full mono using the channel mixer. the real problem i fear is the background black border you had chosen which accentuated the dark tones and made the detail bleed into the dark background. to assist separation i added a white border stroke to create a little separation.

interesting shot, like many of the shots i take a look at, i would have liked to know a little more about your journey to the finished article and exposure details to help with any critique.

best regards
Phil
