FFS; that's crude photoshopping with spectral enhancements. It would be more interesting if the sky was green and the foam red.

Agree slackerdude...sp, when you're the one out there getting tossed around with the housing in hand then you can edit the photos how you like. Until then, just enjoy. Great shot as usual from LS, at first I wanted the horizon to be straightened, then I realized that I like how it leads the eye into the pit of the wave. Great shot!

Uh-oh it's the spectral enhancements police... Come on sp, surely you jest. This photo is about timing and lighting and a wave that makes goofy bastards like myself drool. Luke takes consistently amazing photos. Love this one for what it is. +5

"Photo of the day: Australia's East Coast has been pumping the lucky buggers. Scoring like Prince Will on the weekend. Anyone get any?" ...not too sure how to take this one. Do you mean did we get any royal muff? Did we score with Kate? Or even better, with Pippa Middleton? Cause at the moment it's depressingly more likely than me scoring some waves.
