Neptune's Tongue by aFeinPhoto-com Neptune's Tongue by aFeinPhoto-com
So I am starting to feel a responsiblity to at least post 1 or 2 shots with the new camera. To say the least it's a beast. The detail is just stupid awesome.

Also, I am inclined to say that gear does NOT make a photographer. Too often do people get caught up in what everyone is shooting w/ etc. What it comes down to is technique, shooting raw, and good lenses. 8mp body w/ a L class lens goes a long way. Proper post technique would be 75% of that too.

In any case. This is my quest to get a shot similar to Kaboom! with crazy sunset light. Optimally I get the sun behind the wave but believe I missed my opportunity for the year as the sun is already going back north.

This was one of the more unique waves of the afternoon as it looks like a tongue. SSSSssssssssssuper.

Let me know your thoughts and thanks again!

Excellent capture Aaron. I agree, the photographer makes the photo. You'll get that shot, you have the tenacity and the want to capture it again. Good luck on this quest.

i'll be honest with you, I think the shot is brilliant. The level of detail you see in the wave and the colors the sunset brings to the photo are excellent. I however do not like your border or watermarks, i feel as though they distract too much from an otherwise superb photo.

I just had this convo with someone else...and had it 3 years ago when i started posting online. I leave a watermark for security purposes and I find it easy to look past, no matter who's work I'm looking at. Very much appreciate the comments on the shot itself which you were able to see and critique anyway :-)

single. would be next to impossible to blend. when shooting in conditions like this i make sure to expose just off the right side so i know i can recover highlights and have detail in the blacks. then edit away :-)

Thanks. I always pick up good info in your replies. I appreciate it. I figured you shot one for the mountain and the other for the wave. Thats killer that its one. Time for you to start putting together a photo class i think.
