A reminder to change the focal length of your lens (zoom in and out) to make alternative compositions of the scene. A detail image compared to a wider angle image is important to have. It always amazes me to see what is near an iconic place that I have never seen as a photograph.
The Wave is photographed so regularly by all the "Top Professionals" that you may set out to capture an image that you have already seen in photographs. One of my pet peaves is seeing vertually the identical images in different galleries that I visit around the world. This pet peave also extends to "all the same locations" for many professionals. I think it is important to "bag the iconic shot" but then try for something different that will put your mark on it. Please look through my galleries and see the "Iconic Shots" but then look for images that you have never seen before.
