It could be so easy to take a quick glance at this photo and think "aww...just another wave photo" and then skip over it. but if you take your time and look at it, you will find that this photo embodies all the power of the ocean. this low angle and the way it is framed and the way the sun light is hiting the waves and rocks shows how the wave is beginning to well up; almost like it's going to begin to crash against the rocks any moment. I also like the contrast of colors with the amber hue of the rocks and the deep blue of the water, and the white of the wave crests. This is a really beautiful ocean photo that would be beautiful any time, and any day!
Mellowbeauty...a suggestion-the extremely dark foreground rocks intrude rather than frame the water. A fill flash, slightly different viewpoint (moving safely forward or to the right to get closer to the subject and avoid the shadows) or perhaps post processing to lighten the foreground may have really improved this image.
