|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This are two bottle-nose dolphins I photographed on a catamaran sailing trip along the rugged and paradisiac Na Pali coast of Kauai Island of the Hawaiian Archipelago in 2002 , a wind swept coast with abundant rain, due to its savage and relatively untouched beauty it is the best place I know in these popular islands. |
Like I usually do, in order to take pics of dolphins, I wait until they apear and start swimming (rather dance) with the boat, then I secure myself the best spotting place by hangin` over the nose of the boat, use a polarising filter to cut glare and then quickly start a maniacal rodeo with the waves and dolphins trying to catch a somehow lined up image of more than one dolphin as they torture my patience and test my steadiness with their superb cris-cross aquatic dances ...
Of course I realise this photo is not ,,perfect,, but nevertheless one must not struggle to see plenty of beauty into it...

Radu, not bad. The tails are cut off. O well. The colors are alright. The note is short and sweet.
Hi Radu I like the textures of the water and the look of the dolphins here. The frame however is not complimentary to the overall look of it. Nice shot.
Nice and clear like previous post.

The sharpness here and the colors are great. The shot feels a bit incomplete without the tails, but I assume you were too close to get it in as well.
Well done and thanks for posting
