I guess I'm supposed to give you constructive criticism but all I really thought about this was, "Oh, wow". Outstanding pic!

The colours are beautiful and it looks like a slow exposure on the stones but the weaves are fast exposure.

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! Great shot! I like the sunlight reflecting off the water and the rocks. And I love how you can actually SEE the water in the waves. I'm seriously so sick of the soft misty longer exposed water everyone seems to prefer to look at. I like my water to look like liquid not gas. Thanks for this shot it's superb, different, inspiring and just looks great! Thanks again Zaitz! =)

The horizon line isn't straight, but It works as it is. It kinda gives motion leading up and to the left the same way the waves are crashing. However I will try straightening the horizon in photoshop to see if I like it better that way.

Great Shot ... I grew up there.
Good angle and depth ..

It would be an even greater shot if it wasn't PURPLE !

Thanks for the comments. It is a single exposure. The foregound is covered in ice so that is why it looks that way. Thanks for the comments Daddy_Gemini. I have to admit I do enjoy long exposures. But the power of the waves was what I was capturing that morning. For me it depends on the situation.

The horizon is off by about 3 pixels. I had a b&w version that was straight and forgot to change the color edit. The magenta was also picked up by the 4x5 Velvia I shot that day.

I can't wait to get my hands on this lens, even more so now because of that image!

Great picture, great colors.. I must say I actually quite like the purple.

I think it could've been better with a little bit more sky and a little bit less of the rocky/watery foreground.

Good shot! I like the action. Could be better.
Why the purple hue?

Tone down the purple... a lot. Perhaps straighten the horizon line.
