  4. Lovely shot, Jane. Are you thinking about getting the T-3? I’m sticking with the T-2! Thinking about buying the 10-24 mm zoom lens, though. 🙂


  5. Beautiful. May I ask why you choose black and white for this shot?


  6. I love this photo! The nearest wave has the texture of a bitten cookie, proving it’s deliciousness! And the splashing of further waves is well captured! The tones, and shadow to light balance is aesthetically pleasing…

  7. What I really like about this image is the perspective created by the rows of never-ending pillars. They just slowly vanish into the back, And then the waves breaking through this perspective. Beautifully captured and processed.


    • Hi Otto, It’s my latest creative challenge when I’m in Santa Monica. It’s a bit like a house of mirrors finding the rhythm of the waves and positioning the pilings. I am definitely in the flow under here. 😉 Thanks so much for your appreciation.

  8. Canny decide if I like the verticals best or the water splashes – they are so clear I can almost feel that salty mix


  9. So you submitted this photo of a pier to your peers at Monochromia?

    The picture is appropriate today, when television keeps showing a reporter at the wave-doused pier in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina, as the hurricane approaches.


  10. Can only imagine where you have to stand , squat, sit or whatever to get these pics!


  11. Incredible black and white. How did you -process the image?

  13. Lovely, I like how you train the eye in this one.
