Sunshine, crashing surf, and a pretty sky created a beautiful scene on the beach on the southern Oregon coast on Christmas eve day. I shot a number of images using different exposure settings and shutter speeds to capture an image that was not over exposed by the white bright surf but also showed the massive spray and blue sky/clouds. Image was converted from RAW and exposure adjusted in Capture NX, and sized, saturated, and USM'd in Photoshop CS2.

Hawaii maybe? Looks like black sand. Those are some huge waves.

I like where you're heading with this but feel that the composition is just sort of , well ... average... I mean it fits the rule of thirds but theres just not that much that draws the eye in.

a little graduated tint up top to deepen the blue sky to contrast the clouds

Good use of the rule of thirds for the horizon line.

The waves are the most interesting part of this but are too small in the frame.
