  #188 Simplicity
Entry 26 of 29
   
 
my friend 'flipper'       ©2017 rd52
Canon EOS 7D       26th place, 9 points
1/1000s, f5.6, ISO 400, 625mm, Shutter Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: In Affinity converted from raw, cloned out a couple of birds, added slight clarity, crop, which did away with the cloned birds, increased contrast, de-saturate slightly. sized and saved for the challenge.       Extra Info: I could see the pod feeding really close to the beach. I then saw the SUP'er (stand up paddle) start about a 1/2 mile away and paddle towards the feeding dolphins. When he got close this big male started showing off. He did numerous jumps, but this was the only pic where I got a clear shot of the dolphin, without the paddler being in the way.

    Thanks to all for the comments and suggestions.
mrsawyer, no I didn't do it on purpose. Typical gray day and bad processing on my part.

    Hey, Rd52. Did you present the hazy look as an artistic statement? Just wondering ...

    Congats on catching the leap. A single subject (paddler or dolphin) would be simpler. Tones are very flat and whole image needs brightening.

    This is an amazing nature shot, but not sure if I can call it simple. What a thrill it must have been for the SUPer!!
