this picture is the perfect example to show how photography changed in the past decades. 10 year ago would need a perfect wave to have a cover or photo of the day.

And whos to say that wasn't the prefect wave for that surfer? Perception has changed, it's not the photo's we're being fed en masse... It's about composure and artistry... This picture is gorgeous, nearly silent in a way, peaceful... Beautiful colours... Added to favourites....

....Seems Mickey and Fergal are raising the bar in both photography and surfing each month. Mickey right up there with Little and Alex Williams as far as I'm concerned, and Fergal punting all over the show like Dane Reynolds. Keep it coming. Ireland should be proud.

This image is amazing, has cover shot quality to it!

This image is too good to be posted for free on the internet. Incredible work....so good. Should be cover or contents shot for something like The Surfer's Journal

If its skill and not luck, then recognition will continue and coin will follow.

Squirl, thats just not u, is it?
Younes Apr 11, 2011 Rating: 0
Haha, same old debate Eddy ;) Personnaly & as a photographer, I got nothing against being offered a few bucks for a good shot... but then MSW wouldn't be MSW anymore if it was the case, since its business plan wouldn't be working anymore. True?

Nah, the poodle photo where soutie got a +61 was the most confusing thread to meâ€¦bafflingâ€¦utterly bafflingâ€¦..;-)

I think you grovel very macho ....and I need a date to the prom in 12 years.... but remember it was the Swiss boy who caused the confusion...perhaps English is his 2nd language....I have seen confused comments from him before.

ED- now there's an idea - The MSW Annual! wait a minute though, let me explain. There has been some epic photos on here and there has been some epic features but there has also been some classic, hilarious comments both in the photos and in the forums. the MSW 2010/2011 annual will sum up all the best of the photos, features and comments in a nice thick door stop we can all take to the bog in the morning before work! Who said you have to move from print to online! why cant it go backwards!!
refract Apr 7, 2011 Rating: 6
Ed â€“ Iâ€™m not saying either. And Iâ€™m certainly not saying that â€˜goodâ€™ photos shouldnâ€™t be on the site. Geezâ€¦some of the images on this site are more mind blowing than a lot of what you have to pay for in ad-intensive pages of surf mags these days. My main point was that the photographer that captured this moment deserves to be paid for it. Such an incredible image. But since posting the comment Iâ€™ve also realized that the image is being used by the Cold Pro Festival â€“ so I assume Mickey Smith will get some coin for the use of the shot. Either way â€“ stoked that I got to see itâ€¦.stared at it for ages. Thanks to Mikeyâ€¦thanks to MSWâ€¦.thanks to the golden hourâ€¦thanks to the surfer and puntâ€¦and sorry for any confusion.
Ed Magicseaweed Apr 7, 2011 Rating: 1
I think this is the most confused thread I've ever read. What are you saying? That a good photo has no place in the world's largest collection of surf photography? Instead it should be in a magazine hidden from 99 percent of surfers?

Ahaha I must be pretty retarded indeed, being taught a lesson by a monkey !
Tequila Sunrise Apr 6, 2011 Rating: 1
my daddy always said...if everyone seems confused...it is best to be confused as well...
Baboon Barrels Apr 6, 2011 Rating: 16
if you're being serious then you really are stupid. if you're being sarcastic then you're not doing it very well. Either way you're a dumb ass
-JP- Apr 6, 2011 Rating: 2
Think you've missed the point with that....
Inglorious Landlocked Basterd Apr 6, 2011 Rating: -20
You really think the photographer shouldn't be allowed to post for free ? Yeah damn right, let's charge him a hundred bucks for offering us this shot. Mmmh now I got you... it's more the opposite.. everyone of us should donate one buck just for looking at it.
