impressive capture & nice composition

This is a once in a lifetime shot, and only if you are lucky! Incredible capture.

Good capture, not sure if there is enough tone in this due to trying to bring the sky back? maybe it was just a really flat boring sky though but the whites don't really pop so I am wondering.

Obviously a pretty unique shot though and for that I think it will do quite well.

Lucky capture! Awesome.

This is one of those 'once in a lifetime opportunities'.... incredible shot, and great timing to get the whale as its coming out of the water. I hope other voters recognize how tough a shot like this is to get, and vote it high as well. 9

I'm only 4 into voting, but this will end up top 10 at worst, great sports shot.

I'm jealous! What an amazing shot!

10 in basic editing, securely you'll have something of similar or better for wildlife, I don't know your final position here but with a similar photo you'll be in the top positions in that challenge.

Good idea. To meet the challenge I would maybe have liked to see this in portrait mode with the whale pointing down.
