Originally posted back in 2011 and reprocessed now using Google’s Silver Efex Pro. The image was captured at Hookipa Beach on the north coast of Maui where I was photographing some surfers and windsurfers riding the waves. I managed to get some interesting shots of the board riders but took a moment to isolate one of the breaking waves with its salt spray whipping off the peak.
I decided to go with a dramatic look and although the image is now somewhat different in its split tonings, partly due to the software changes and perhaps my changing tastes, I still think the split toned monochrome treatment is right for this image.
Canon 5D Mark 2 Focal Length: 700mm at f6.3, shutter speed 1/800 sec, ISO 100
Processing: Lightroom then into Photoshop using Silver Efex Pro.
