bob tabor's splash 7
Bob Tabor's ingenious method captures the spirit of the wave by breaking it into its physical elements. He crops the most energetic section of the surf and, by eliminating the horizon line, deprives the picture of any sense of scale. He heightens chromatic contrasts until these waves dominate the image - there is only the fluid burst of spray and the flash of reflected light off the water. The results are undeniable: dynamic three-dimensional explosions seem to surge off the page, and it is hard to believe these waves aren't moving.
