The Waves

by Kristi Hines · Australia

Today’s shot is one I consider a bit abstract in the sense that there isn’t a lot of “reference” to the overall scene and location. It was taken near the London Bridge along the Great Ocean Road in Australia. You couldn’t actually get to the beach, which is probably why it was so pristine and beautiful. I just loved watching the waves rush onto the beach.

This image has me yearning for visit to a beach. The water looks so pretty. Nice shot!

This is awesome Kristi, I really like the abstract feel. The colors, contrast, the point at which you’ve caught the water, all perfect. Now if I could only get to a beach…

I love the beach…Nice contrasting elements here with the water, waves, wet sand, dry sand…

Good composition. Brings up a peaceful emotion for me. I love the ocean waves rolling onto the beach and the sounds as well.

Great shot with lots detail.

Is this one shot in JPEG or Raw? I wonder what it looks like without Topaz Adjust?

After seeing Jason’s P-3 photo, I guess I will give Topaz a shot and upgrade to C$$$$5. πŸ™‚

Love the super blue water against the warm beach! Is it summer yet?

Such a beautifully captured frame, contrasting the foamy tide as she kisses the luscious sandy shoreline. I can almost hear the water, and have the urge to run barefoot on that sand. A very cool frame.


Chris Kenison

Love this composition! That detail in the water is fantastic!

It has a very calming feel, great shot. I guess today was beach day. You know what they say great minds think alike.


Scott Wood

Great abstract. Even without any real references, you know exactly what you are looking at. I really like it and it makes me want to be anywhere other than the desert today. πŸ™‚

Beautiful shot! I like all the lines that each wave forms.


David LaSpina

Lovely shot! The color is fantastic — not just the saturation, but the contrast between the tan/brown of the beach and the blue/white of the water. Masterful job, Kristi!
