6th picture was photo-shopped (exact same image as in picture #1, except they "added" it to a picture taken from an oil rig).
Otherwise, great shots, and they certainly hi-light the unforgiving nature of the sea.

Dude awsome. Actually, does anyone know of any good video of really big seas? It's kind of a sick obsession - looking at big seas.

No.4 and No.6 are not real. I am not sure about that B&W of the ship at the top of that tall wave. It surely can't be real.

Could the second picture possibly be real? If so that is one awesome photo, I wonder who snapped the shot and if the vessel survived?

Some photos are obviously fake (no6). I would love to hear the stories behind the ones that are real. Why do you think 4 is fake?
