Natural landscapes: the winter wave


As I processed this jpeg with Photoshop, I debated whether to crop off some of the left side – after all, some might see the current composition as being weighed to the right. But then I decided to keep it because the cresting wave is rolling to the left, so there’s space for it to fall and space for your mind to consider what the water will look like just a second or two after this exposure was made.
I love the drama of black-and-white, but some might like colour better, so here it is:
Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300 mm. zoom lens.
