[actual title: Le fils de Poséidon]

Inspiration
This picture was taken on the day after my family got back from the hike of Lake Superior's coastal trail. It was extremely windy, so me and my crazy siblings decided to go swimming. :dummy: And yes, the waves were fantastic. My favourite thing to do was to run at full speed from the beach into a huge wave. I got knocked off my feet every time. We also did body surfing (which hurt our faces), diving and wave-attacking.

A wild ride, believe me.

Nature is the greatest thing ever. :faint:


Technique
Since that's obviously me in the picture, being epic and almost dying, you've probably guessed I didn't take this shot.
Well, you're right. It was my mom. Isn't she fantastic? :wow:

Edit: Yeah, I turned this into a lomo shot. :dummy: Awesome.

I love the colors of the water. You don't see that very often.

Do you use actions, or do the edits yourself? (:

I'm proud to say I do the edits myself. I've tried out actions, just out of laziness/curiosity, but I've never been happy with the fact that I can't fine-tune them – they're never quite right.

I learned this lomo style edit from a tutorial and they are all the same process, but I alter the numbers for blending layers/curves/noise/blur/etc. depending on the photo so that the saturation/colours work out right. :]

Yes, I understand. I never used actions, myself.

Of course. I really like the saturation in this shot. :heart:

This is awesome. :D It looks like so much fun! Now I want it to be summer again. :[ I've got to try that full-speed wave thing! I've only done the body-surfing. That's amazing fun if the waves are powerful enough.

Great shot! Stunning "Freeze" effect at my single stare!
The waves remind me of frozen water.

Five or six, I think. :D I can read it. You should be able to, since theoretically you have better eyesight than I do. Or you could just make your screen bigger. :eyes:

Let's just say my friends had to keep telling me to shut up because I was correcting the movie too loudly in the theater.
