I rarely do black and white landscapes, but with this shot I didn't have much say in the matter. It was a gloomy morning with very little colour so the obvious choice was to convert it to B&W when I got home. I'm happy with the results. The lone figure is a fisherman, I think he was picking some sort of bait off the rocks, took about half hour of waiting for him to get into the right position and standing straight up.
This photo was also a finalist in the Sony World Photography awards.
I hope you like it Smile

I love the mono treatment. The brooding sky and the power of the crashing wave is excellent.

Oh cool you joined Smile I love the atmosphere in this. It wouldn't have been the same without the person either...gives a great sense of scale. Worth looking at big to see the whole movement.

Thanks Pete! Yes I hadn't heard of ePHOTOzine till you mentioned it over at Google+. You're right the photo is really just another b&w seascape without the figure.
Cheers!
