This is a powerful image. I think the reason that it didn't fair better was that it is dark. You shot raw, you could have increase exposure by 1/3 to 1/2 stop without losing too much range. regards, lg

Its a whale of a tale... nice capture I just wish the tail poped off the background of the water a bit more they are almost the same shade.
