Superb picture Kay. I like the hint of colour you've left for the surfer's face too

because the rss feed has this shot in a tiny thumbnail, the surfer looked like a cross, coming out of the water. so when you made the title hope, i was also thinking faith.

anyway, nice one. smile
Very nice processing Kay turning a fairly ordinary shot in to one with lots of atmosphere.

Is he hoping for waves? I like this shot a lot - the surfer looks completely dwarfed by his surroundings.
i thought they were just small collections of pebbles...
before i scrolled down and saw how small the human is relative to them

well done

This is a gorgeous shot Kay! Looks like it could be in the Malibu area?

It is stunning and the title is so fitting. Beautiful work!
Is there just a touch of colour here Kay? Somehow looks a bit cold for surfing, but they do it on the coast here, so who needs sun?

Lovely shot Kay, it makes him look very vulnerable
