lol I couldn't have said it better! Since Ive been horribly criticized before on regular comments, I'm a little worried about asking for a critique. But writing them for sure is one step in the right direction hehe.

Oh yeah I know how that is! It's still very wonderful!
I'm happy to do it. I've been so shy about them, but noticed a lot of people want them, so I thought I'd try it out.

It's not easy to capture wild cetaceans. To be honest I've never seen a photo like this of a humpback whale. It's well caught, you got all the water splashes and white water and that is a real plus. I wish the photo was moved a bit more to the left to include the ocean on the left about as much as there is on the right. I think that would help with the composition. I'm not sure how I feel about the sky, but I'm glad the horizon is straight! Well done with that. I don't feel a lot of emotions from this photo. But it really shows the power these guys have!

I think it was colored well. Water webbing is hard and here it is done well. I also like how the shading reflexes the light source. You put a lot of thought into the coloring.
The only thing is the dorsal and flukes seem too large. I wish there was more detail done to the surface of the water. Like the detail on the orca. The patches are very original, but the view is not. Though I do feel like I'm looking at him under the water. Over all it's done very well!! I can't wait to see more from you!

This was my first and I hope I did it right <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />
