Camera: Sony DSC-F828
Location: Big Island of Hawaii
Date: Apr 10, 2005
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: 64
Shutter: 1/320
Date Uploaded: Apr 10, 2005

Taken at the Dolphin Quest at the Hilton on the Big Island, These dolphins are very playful, this one is jumping through a hop that was through for it. The trainer will through a large ball in the poll and the dolphins will entertain themselves batting it back and forth.

A small bit of pipe was cloned out, the photo was resized then USM to sharpen then USM again with a large radius and low value to boost the contrast just a bit.

A very unaesthetic background but an excellent piece of stopped motion. Beautiful creature at full stretch, showing lots of muscular tension.

This is a beautiful capture in itself and the technical is super. I find the garbage bags a bit distracting but I know that you take what yhis sort you can get with images of this nature. Good luck.
