Clark Little's Best Waves, RANKED

04/08/2015 05:13 am ET | Updated Apr 08, 2015

Clark Little estimates he’s taken close to a million photographs of waves since discovering them as a unique photographic subject in 2007.

Since then, he’s grown to world-icon status. He's published a book, he flies first class, he owns his own gallery and he's been exhibited at the Smithsonian.

Little also takes pictures of water, but he’s known for his wave photographs because of his unique take -- one thumb out, three fingers in, and pinky extended -- on the classic motion.

It's as if he's saying to his 1.4 million Instagram followers, “Call me.”

Understandably, his unique wave has caught on in Hawaii, and many aspiring photographers now take wave photos just like Little's -- it’s a group of fans known as the Little League -- but we’re here to say they’re all imitators.

Below, for the first time in history, HuffPost Hawaii presents Little’s best wave photographs, RANKED, starting with number 19:
