@fh flipper I try to keep things as natural as possible with minimal post processing however on this occasion I used HDR (+1,0,-1 exposures blended) to try and bring out the energy being released by these giant waves and the general chaos of the situation-thanks for comments. more stuff here http://www.flickr.com/photos/tommyperkins

A wise surfer with balls of steel (or diamond) knows how to drop in a wave like that

I actually agree - it does look a little like hes facing the wave... Ignore the negatives you getting - just bitter people with tiny... . . . . . . . waves in the UK.
