I think so, I got soaking wet as the wave caught me off guard. I held on to my tripod so the wave wouldn't blur my shot. It did, so I kept shooting as the wave went back out. I haven't been out shooting for over 8 months as I've been undergoing chemo, so I was a bit rusty. My wife was yelling because she didn't want me to get sick from the cold water, but she liked the image anyway. ND filter, enhanced color in PS.

Spectacularly pretty-all around. I'd say the sky could have been toned down a smidge if I were to nitpic. Shutter speed is perfecto!

i'm not getting the title or its connection to the challenge but tis is a very pretty photo, particularly the lines in the water are something really cool and I haven't seen them in a long exposure water shot like this, 7

Great shot, but it feels a little shoe-horned to me. Not sure what "story" it tells.
