Hi James . I have never seen a Dolphin in the wild. they look so graceful. . you have captured this one with fine detail and natural colours. the sea is a lovely blue. well done TFS.
Hi James, definitly one of the highlights of my visit to NZ, BUT I never managed to get them on film. Here's a great picture, because I know how hard it is to get a picture of a dolphin. Good work,

i know the feeling - i should really stop posting until i have caught up1
Anyway, this is a great shot, loads of drama and movemnet and very well timed, probably alot harder than it looks!! There's a few pods of Dolphins around my stretch of the coast apparantly, yet to see any though!

You are very lucky to see such a cool but rare animal James and then photograph it brilliantly as well!
Impeccable timing to capture this breaching Dolpin.
We get a real sense of its speed from the water spray and dynamic composition.
Superb sharpness and clarity.
Very, very well done!

Nice shot. Good use of thirds and you've stopped the action of the water droplets perfectly.

A lovely capture of this dolphin ,the lighting is very good.
The colours are bright and vibrant.
The splash of water is well captured giving a very good indication of motion.
