Crashing Wave_Great Ocean Road
Good timing, a fast shutter speed and a low angle of view was all that was required to make this panoramic image of a crashing wave in the Port Campbell National Park near Victoria’s Twelve Apostles.
The simplicity of the surroundings allows the wave to stand out, as does the black-and-white rendering that seems to etch the light toned wave out from the darker sky and rocks.
I opted for a warm, sepia-like tone to add a sense of nostalgia and serenity to an otherwise dramatic scene. I often enjoy the balance that is achieved through the juxtaposition of opposites within the frame.
Image Processing was achieved in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
