I was lucky to get this humpback whale, and then had to pull this guy out of heavy fog. Tiny tweaks in Levels, contrast, curves, smart sharpen, convert to B&W via channel mixer.

It's a crime to photograph whales. And I think shoehorning is a felony as well.

I wonder if there is a reward for turning you in... :P

I think this is an awesome shot, and feel that the fog adds to the atmosphere of the image. Great example of being ready when the "right place at the right time" came along.
I see that it got a lot of flack about being a rather out on a limb connection to the challenge.

'magnificant twig?' seems like quite a stretch to me

Great capture! Must have been quite a sight. Overall the pic is just too gray otherwise , with perhaps better light this would be an 11 --

Very nice; as if branching out of the water.

Great capture. Kinda stretching it for the challenge, hehe. That's OK. Still scoring you high.

That's a pretty wow whale shot, struggling to score well as "branch" i think, which is a pity

Magnificent shot. With a little more contrast in it I would rank this action photo high. Keep up the great work!

I don't think it really meets the challenge.

I wouldn't normally say "this would look better in colour" but ... I think it would ;)
I'm not sure what the B&W treatment is supposed to achieve.

Can't figure out how it meets the challenge.

Oh man, why would you do this in black and white, this would've been a magnificient shot if in color.
