Pro Critique
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.


Lightroom 2 Tip
Paint Attributes To Multiple Images
The Painter tool makes it easy to apply a variety of attributes to multiple images quickly and easily. In the Library module, choose the Grid view using the button below the preview area. Then click on the Painter tool (the "can of spray paint" icon) to activate this tool. From the pop-up below the grid display of images, choose the attribute you want to apply to a set of images. Then enter or select the desired value to the right of the pop-up. The Painter tool is now armed and ready to use. You can click on an individual image to apply the attribute you specified, or click and drag across multiple images to apply the attribute to all of them. When you're finished, simply click on the circle to the left of the Paint pop-up below the grid of images to put the Painter tool away.

  1. If you go to www.charlesellenberger.com you'll see another shot taken of a great wave from this same location. I have some shots there where the waves created entire tunnels of water. This shot is very special. KaBoom is Great! I like it a lot. Charles
  2. Beautiful shot!
