Nice capture!

This would have loked so great if the focus was on the whales as opposed to the boat.

Interesting shot. Do like that you kept the boat in despite the blown out sky because it helps to tell a story. Looks very late in the day, so I am sure exposing was tough.

Nice picture - Just wish they were in focus not the boat as they are the main subject of the picture.

I really like the picture overall; good composition. However, I wish there was more color clarity and sharper focus on the orcas.

Great timing.

This is one of those photos that mean so so much more to the people that were there and witnessed the events. The placement of the three elements in the photo is good, and provides a strong sense of context, but as an unconnected viewer I wish that the focus was on the whales rather than the onlooking ship.

I know how hard it is to get this shot! Lucky you to see these whales. Just wish the whales were more clear than the boat - could you have cropped tighter?
