Photo By Aaron Feinberg
The North Shore of Oahu is the world’s best-known big surf spot, but northern Pacific storms also pelt the northern shores of the island of Kauai where this image was made. This is the kind of shot that defies the rule about shooting coastlines at magic hour. In this case having the sun high in the sky makes the blue water glow in the crashing wave and it also gives definition to the exploding spray. The use of a polarizer would have helped bring down the background sky would further defined the wave. Polarizers are also ideal tools when photographing water because they cut the glare and let the water color come through.
