Thank you Lydia for pointing out that I know absolutely nothing about Punctuation of English. This is a very common problem, I was showing a co-worker and he pointed out the same thing. =)

This is an amazing shot! Rich in color and detail throughout, and that crashing wave so sharp and wispy is adds a lot of character to this shot.

Beautiful! At first I thought it was over-processed... then I fell in love with it as I studied it more. I hope everyone takes the time to take this beauty in.

Well done. (You're missing an apostrophe in "Nature's" *smile* )
