Oh, but I like what the processing does with the water!

I was gonna say, this ain't in Oman! For one thing, she's seriously underdressed. :-) GREAT action shot! And I can't find fault with the processing, but I ain't picky on that sort of thing anyway. Very good composition, especially catching the shape of the wave behind her.

Hey, Toto, I don't think we're in Oman anymore!

I don't like the post-processing I did on this. I agree that it's over-sharpened.

Great position (you hitch a ride?!) and a wonderful moment. That huge tube behind her shows what she has to deal with.

It's a touch too sharp in places and lacking in some strong light, but it's still a commendable capture.

You really captured the concentration on the subjects face and the awesome power of the wave in the background. Congrats.

Makes a change from the muscle clad young men usually pictured surfing!

Superb capture. I'd crop some of the calm water at the bottom.
