[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This male dolphin passed just in front of me while I was swimming in a beach in Fernando de Noronha, an ocean island in Brazil. The males protect the group which is composed of several females and their babies.

I like the sun reflecting on the dolphin's skin. Too bad you didn't capture the whole animal, but it's still not a bad picture.

I know very little about underwater photography, but I like this picture. It would be better if you had captured this guys whole nose, and it is cropped a little tight at the bottom. I like the composition other than that. Good work!

Dear Fausto,
You lucky fish, I never encountered a dolphin under water, only above, and I add your work to my theme "under and above the seas a d lakes"

I honestly dont understand people complaining about bit missing and composition! Under water you press the button: NO TIME TO WAIT!
Thanks for sharing.
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
