Hey! I recognize that whale! Actually, I don't, but I thought it sounded good. anyway, having been hunting for whales, I know how extremely difficult it is to shoot them, particularly on a bobbing boat. And this one is sharp, well focused, with a good composition and colors. 7

Great looking shot. Excellent sharpness and it's nice and bright. Only nitpick is the hot spot in the shot where the whale ends and the water begins. Perhaps it's just a side effect of contrast adjustments? If so you can always adjust that in a new layer and erase any hot spots created with the eraser set a mid level opacity. (no vote)

the splash and the tail fin are well captured - these gentle giants are amazing and you did a nice job to show their power

nice crisp, clean sharp details with your eye drawn straight to what you want to look at. Well done

Favourite animal to photgraph! Probably the long zoom hurts the sharpness in the flukes. Nice capture!
