Your shot is amazing.
I love how the two induviduals stand in front of that fierce water (the splash at its highest point) and seem to almost confront it. I can almost see the wave having a soul of its own and two arms raising diagonally to intimidate them.
The contrast is very captivating and so is the sharpness and the different forms on the ground. I also like how the sky adds to the dramatic effect of the photograph. ... just wow! : )
I'd love to see more of your photographs !!! this one is great!

Hey Andy, thanks for your kind words on my picture. I was suprised as well, when I saw the shape of the waves, looking like two arms scaring the father and his son. I like as well, that the shot captures the moment, where the son realizes the wave and is about to run away.
I was about to play around with taking picture from the basalt stones and the waves, trying to find out how close I can get to the water and where I find the best perspective, when this father and his son arrived. First of all I was kind of angry, that he did not realize that I was shooting in that direction. So I stood and wanted to wait for them to leave. Then I saw they were getting closer and closer to the water. Finally I realised that between the time they arrived and the time they went closer to the water, we did not had high waves and had low wind for several minutes, but I knew further and higher waves were coming again, obviously the father and son did not. So I smiled a little inside, prepaired for the next wave and just waited up.
The fact that then the photo has become so nice, has pleased me of course and absolutely more than the both in front
we had several tourists at the giants causeway as usuall, standing behind or left from the pictures, so after this wave we all had big laughters
