This is a shot of dolphins that swarmed our boat as we where heading home from a 10 livaboad dive trip. The pod was huge, several hundred. I posted this in Black and white because I have been working with silver effex and wanted some input

Hi Mike. Nice catch! Excellent focus and details.



I really like the wild dolphins, and usually I see pictures of dolphins in color, the choice of b&w is very interesting, I like the result.
Good timing, there is a nice harmonious dance, a beautiful moment well captured.

Hi Mike,
Excellent monochrome choice, and what a capture, priceless.Exposure and details are spot on and the gracefulness of the dolphins very eye catching.Well done, full marks here.

Excitement as the water bubbles with life.
Nice touch with the tones used.


Hi Mike,

I really like the shot. It has fine detail, an interesting subject and is well presented. The thing for me is that is seems a little dark. I am not familiar with the program you are using, but I wonder if lightening the shot would produce a much different shot?
