    I managed to catch this shot during a brief encounter with dolphins as they swam alongside our boat on the Red Sea. Any thoughts?

    Nice one. Have tried to get that many times and failed. Might be tighter, but you'd probably have probs positioning in the frame if you shot it closer. A crop would help if it is a big file.

    Thanks for the comments guys. It is a largeish file but have a feeling it may show a little motion blur if I crop and blow it up a little. I will give it a go and try to post it later. Thanks again.

    Nice composition, the subject swimming into the unfocused waves works for me. Just think 1/100 second either way and you'd not have had the shot. That's what wild life is about.

    For me, the crop has a much greater impact, amazing!

    I think you can get away with the bit of motion blur there is, because we all know dolphins go like the hobs of hell, and it's coming out of a (mostly) sharp splash. SWMBO's comment - "It looks as though the next bounce will be out of the monitor onto the keyboard".
