Comments: “Even with super-telephoto lenses, foreground or background can really help a photograph. Like surfing, correct positioning is the key to success.”

    This photo doesn’t look like The Wedge. The Newport Beach Wedge has a sandy beach and a left to right break.

    Looks like photo taken from Corona Del Mar ( opposite side of harbor entrance ) . The wedge is just that , a wedge . Wave breaks of jetty , but there is also a right break that meets the left break to create the wedge .
