Yah, Ann, you hit bullseye again, this goddess has so many weird powers that even oceanic waves change their maveric behavior ! Very high maintenance item in household, though , LOL

This is intriguing...Aphrodite appears to be parting the waves...They are not surrounding her....evidence of her godlike powers?

Great wrap around wave capture.

Dave, I sure took quite a few pictures of aphrodite on the sea shore and, best of all, while she complied with dress code according to Greeks mythology, but… She advised me that all my artistic ventures with her should’ve been immediately terminated and she’d returned to ocean foam once I disclose those precious moments to general public. I am really sorry to disappoint, but you know, all those goddesses have very caprice character and you have to put up with it…

Lovely scene, Eldar. Your timing was perfect to capture the wave the way you did. It looks as if the wave is flowing around Aphrodite as a way of honoring her beauty. I'm glad you did not run off to get her a drink. Thank you for sharing this wonderful image! If you took more pictures of her, please show them to us.

Michael, your point is well taken and I must admit that aphrodite should've rather had something like thathttp://www.pbase.com/eldarrio/image/35700628 in her right hand... My problem was,- I had about 100 meters to run to nearest drinking cabin, knowing that once I leave, the whole bunch of horny hunks will offer aphrodite to pull her out of the sea foam and would certainly pinch her cute butt meanwhile ! So, this prospective did not appeal to me very much... Coral branch in her hand points in to direction of nearest bar, though...

Hi Eldar. What an exciting shot, with the waves cradling aphrodites legs, mirroring the dramatic applause from the puffy moving clouds above. Great wide angle shallow dof getting this babe to really pop and leaving the background in, slightly blurred but beautifully exposed for great context. But what is that in her hand? Looks like a puny devining rod of one who is searching for water. Reminds me of Coleridge "water water everywhere nor any a drop to drink." Great work. All my best, Michael.

Nice catch!

Fantastic portrait. I like very much how the wave breaks around your beautiful model. The music adds well to the scene too. Excellent work.
