    An incredible photo, and very crisp, considering the photographer is experiencing the same waves.

    It has been run through Photoshop. Look where at the waterline - no turbulence at all.

    Not sure about Photoshop, but that's an insane shutter speed if the droplets on the right are to be believed.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Andy, a bright subject pretty much front/overhead-lit by direct sunlight, in the tropics, with minimal depth-of-field (indicating a relatively low f-stop); I'm guessing a shutter speed of between 1/500th to 1/2000th of a second. Certainly enough to 'freeze' any motion.

    I don't like those deck houses. They can be replaced by big square holes.

    I don't think she appreciates being sheeted in that hard.

    That must have been bone-jarring when the boat came crashing down on the other side of that wave.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    I don't know about that. Boat that shape might ease herself back in reasonably gently. Big whoosh of water either side but not bone shattering.
