Good use of scale here with the size of wave against the surfer, nice timing also.

Photographers Comment

Wow, thank you so much! My name is Lyle Krannichfeld and this image was made here on Maui at Peahi, otherwise known as Jaws. It is an image I skipped in initial selections from the day, but came back to it because it reminded me of one of my favorite paintings, 'Great Wave off Kanagawa'. It was shot with a Canon 7D and 100-400, with post processing in Lightroom. It's become a very popular image of mine and looks great on aluminum =) Mahalo!
