What an experience it is to see these whales. What sort of whale is it? It would be good if you could have said that in your notes - you can still add them. I saw some Humpback whales off Hervey Bay in Australia 8 years ago (with a 35mm camera) and we still remember the experience. Your photo is very sharp and the details are great. Well shown TFS.

Great Shot. Everybody that goes whale watching wants to take this shot. You have a real winner here. Nice Job!

Great experience for you Eugene. The water falling from the tail is a great capture. It has made its own waterfall! Tack sharp image. Very good work. Thanks.

What a wonderful picture Eugene! I have been to NZ last November 2004 and enjoyed every moment of that trip. I've been to Kaikoura also and captured THIS Sperm Whale. Your picture is great. Good POV, great details and well composed. I would have liked to read a longer note though. I hope you don't mind I've added your picture to my theme. TFS! Prachtige foto! :) Punten komen later, ze zijn alweer op! :( BTW ---> A whale is NOT a fish but a mammal! ;)
