Inspired by nearby competition, this male humpback put some serious power into this series of forward lunges. In 7 years of whale watching, I had never seen a lunge like this from this angle. Taken with a canon 350d and 70-300 lens.

Underwater Fireworks. This is a group of fire urchins, and originally, a very plain shot. I adjusted the highlights, vibrance, and saturation, and rotated it 90 degrees. All done in Lightroom, not Photoshop.
