Location: Grand Haven, MI
Date: Jan 1, 2011
Aperture: f/1.8
ISO: 160
Shutter: 1/4000

Date Uploaded: Jan 1, 2011

North side of channel at Grand Haven. Not a very pleasant day. Mid-20's and 35-40mph wind. There were two guys in dry suits surfing on the north side of the pier. Crazy

Used Viveza for some lighting effects (prefer that over dodge and burn most times); overlaid a b&w layer and reduced opacity

Going for the shoehorn here.(although there was an arctic scene in the top 10 of the last challenge) Plus, how can you go wrong with water drops on DPC, right?

This is looking to be the first shot submitted on DPC with the new K5. I hope it sets the bar high! :-)

Wonderful shot! The depth of field is absolutely perfect, the details are amazing, and the spray of water is stunning.

Holy hell this is amazing. The power, the mood, the sharp and jagged vs. the smooth. Incredible. My favorite.

Lovely image but I find it hard to define water drops as bits or pieces. The icicles can perhaps just pass if one stretches the imagination a bit. To my thinking stuff like air, light, fire, water, wind ect. cannot be divided into bits and pieces.
