A female photographer walked into my scene about 9:00PM and stood very close to the splash of the huge wave in the area fenced with "Danger" warning sign. Although it's too far and noisy to talk to her, I could feel her passion at that moment.

Outstanding photo. What I really like is the fact it was taken with an old out-dated(by DSLR standards today) 8mp Canon 20D. No offense intended. I just find it humorous especially on a site where people tend to go overboard looking for new technology to save/improve their photography instead of learning to master the old technology and the skills required to take a superb photo. IMO this is just as good as anything that could be taken with a 21mp 5D MKII if not better. Great timing, capture and PP.

Beautiful! Thanks for the explanation too!
Very ethereal feel to it with the waves just sort of fading into space as it were.

Ohhhhhhhmy! I am in awe! And what a stroke of luck having the photographer appear in your scene. I think it turns this photo into the 7+ score that it received -- however -- I still think the vote your commenters gave you is much closer to what this photo deserves :) CONGRATULATIONS ! !

Really a gorgeous shot, my favorite for the challenge. The way the blues of the water seem to wrap the shore is awesome and the photographer on shore adds to the sense of size. Hope to see this one on the front page.
