With Hurricane Tomas lurking in the Atlantic I decided to and see what the effects would be at the beach. The waves were a good 8-12 feet, some of the largest I’ve seen here. Another photographer/surfer told me that the waves were even better on Friday, maybe even some 15 footers, which is certainly not common here. Anyway, I know this doesn’t necessarily show these waves but it does give a pretty good view of the effects of mighty Tomas.
A better look can be seen here.
On a processing note, I have to say that the latest version of Photomatix does an outstanding job of handling ghosting, evidence by the incoming wave on the left of the picture. You can get a trial of it here.
