Thanks so much, Bill, for your enthusiastic support.
Thanks Alan. I’m looking forward to having this one and the entire series printed and up on somebody’s wall.
I love this photo. That wave has the perfect shape and counterbalanced by the rest of the water flowing in what looks opposite directions. Superb.
Fantastic curves and you’ve definitely captured a sense of motion. I’m looking forward to seeing the other images in the series. I enjoyed mind surfing this wave
Fascinating explanation and gorgeous photo!
Yes, a resounding yes it works. The inner part of the wave, the foam or whatever it’s called looks so buoyant, like cork. It is motion in 2D. Excellent, Kerry. Can’t wait to see the rest.
This is an awesome image. I love it! Processing looks great to me. It’s more important that it expresses what you want to communicate. The only tiny composition thing I notice is that I’d like to see the left side where the wave finishes. I held my hand over the left edge to simulate a crop, and cropping off to just get rid of the dark spot in the wave stopped me from wanting to look further left. Seems just a little more abstract and a more peaceful transition to the edge IMO. Looking forward to seeing more of them. Sounds like an great time.
Thanks Richard. Once I found the composition and speed I wanted, I took about 30 shots since each one will be slightly different. I chose this one largely because the curve of the wave was so perfect.
Nathan, Cathy and Gary - thank so much for your very positive feedback, always nice to hear.
Thanks Bradley. For me, part of the struggle composing this image, consistent with the continuous unfolding of the wave itself, is that there is no point where I can say, “that’s where it ends.” I feel that cropping from the left would leave the image feeling cut off without a sense of resolution. My choice was to leave a hint of something else emerging. I feel like it adds a bit of tension, which, to my mind, is consistent with the dynamic nature of the wave itself. Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it
There’s always a reason for everything. It warms my heart that you know exactly what you want from your images.
I tends towards balanced harmony with my images. Life provides enough tension of its own . I like images I can sit back and relax with . Your image certainly fits that description. Can’t wait to see more of them.
Nice. I always try to shoot multiples as well since the slightest ms can make a huge difference in the quality of a photo.
Beautiful, Kerry. What a great abstract water image. It will make a heck of a print.
Just wonderful lines. I agree this one is special, and that dominant rainbow curve really makes this. Splendid Kerry; you’ve set a high bar for the rest of your series
I’m very late to this, but can’t let this go by without commending you on one outstanding image. Many adjectives and comments already - I can only echo.
Perhaps in my top 5 of NPN 2.0 images (I’m not counting, but trying to convey how impressed I am…)
Metal print for sure must be the destination.
Looking forward to more from your trip.
Not much to add, Kerry. Just that this is a wonderful imagine, one I can get lost in, so printing big gives me the space to dive in.
I’m blushing. That is so kind of you to say. I will be printing. Don’t really know what a metal print is but I’ll look into it.
Hey Marylynne. Good to see you over here actively sharing your work.
Check out the DuraPlaq page/discounts here on NPN.
Metal/acrylic prints have become quite popular these days. Inks can either be directly “printed” on a metal surface, or a print can be laminated of sorts to metal or acrylic. They are quite beautiful. These literally can eliminate the need for matting and framing; you just hang directly (there’s an offset mounting on the back to keep the print an inch or more from the wall.)
Prices can be competitive especially if you take in to account matting and framing, plus the print.
Check it out,
Oh I just realized you are in the Vision Driven also. Worlds collide!
