I thought this was a good entry for the water competition.

Having a figure totally submerged in a wall of water gives the wave a sense of scale.

And the palm trees add that hint of the tropics.

Terrific shot, John! I love this frozen moment in time and how you've captured the power and motion of the wave. The figure embedded in the face of the wave is a great addition, as are the two lone palm trees. A beautifully composed and executed shot.

Lovely photo; the shape of those breakers really draws the attention, along with the seal-like swimmer, half-hidden. :-)

Emptiness is not nothingness. It is simply the opposite of full of it.

It is an image full of movement and excitement - well deserving of its placement in the contest.
Congratulations John!

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

My thoughts mirror what Steve said. So much to see and take in. Those waves are fantastic.
