Photographer's Note

This photo was taken yesterday at the Ocean Theatre in Hong Kong's Ocean Park.

I don't normally like these type of shows - were animals are made/taught to do unnatural tricks - but it does leave you with a great sense of respect for these magnificent, intelligent creatures. And the kids just absolutely love the dolphins!

I was just amazed by the speed of the dolphins in the water. And with only 20 metres of space they could jump so high.

Even though it was raining yesterday, and half the audience was not under any cover, the place was totally packed and most of the crowd had waited over an hour - for a 25 minute show!

I took over 20 photos and only in 4 of them do I have any dolphins. They were just so fast. I was luck to get this shot, because I was at the back of the stand and using the full zoom function.

Tech: No resize. Cropped directly from the original, but had to crop tightly to remove the edge of the pool and other obstacles. Sharpened. Brightness +3. Contrast +6. Increased blue +10 to match other photos.
