So apparently the jet skis were necesary that day, fair enough, but for the sake of an otherwise beAuTIFul shot, couldn't someone have taken the time to photoshop those retched machines outta there.

Well I was uncharacteristically (cough) insensitive with that comment...don't blame him for taking it badly and retaliating like a touchy sponger. Sorry Dope2...didn't mean to offend you.

Had to make a lot of adjustments to the image as there was so much mist around, from waves slapping on the rocks, which gave it some noise....

Don't know who that is. I said it was a sick shot. I'm sure you are an expert on anal. There is a difference between a friendly observation and taking a shot a someone.

Oh you guys are funny. This wave is one of the smallest of the whole day. Sets were TOTALLY not paddle in-able (grammar?). basically this wabve is scraps. If you want to see what the rest of the day mainly looked like - click on this link http://bit.ly/fsTX01

Er..."The phenomenon of wave shape, light etc all come together to form a synergistic beauty that can only really be 'experienced' at a particular moment in time." So really what you're saying is that this photo is not phenomenal at all, as it is merely a depiction of a historic, unique event from a particular place and point in time?

Papa Chambo's avatar

Papa Chambo Mar 25, 2011 Rating: 2

'Phenomenal' is very relevant term for a wave photo like this. The phenomenon of wave shape, light etc all come together to form a synergistic beauty that can only really be 'experienced' at a particular moment in time. It is through our 'experience' of things that they come to mean something to us, something that cannot be quantified or measured in any other way using Cartesian methodology ie; known things based on mathematical or scientific based research. This is why surfers are often easy going and thoughtful people. It is quite extraordinary how much of the western worlds idea of progress is based more on 'structured' knowledge, thought and research, than the phenomenology of 'being' in the world. Thanks.
