Qila, a beluga at the Vancouver Aquarium.

I had been trying for about two YEARS to get a satisfactory shot of a beluga leaping out of the water! Editing was not as extensive as it appears, since she was very bright, and it was partly cloudy with the sun shining just right, so there was a lot of natural contrast. Artistic flair took over after that. Did I go too far? :D

I think I might have gone black and white. It's so close already and I feel like the touch of blue on the water is slightly distracting. That said, the image is amazing regardless. Perfect capture, caught at just the right moment. Looks like she's looking at you, too. lol

Thank you for the feedback! I was wondering about the blue, but it looked a bit odd sucking the colour out, too, but then, I am not a fan of black and white photography for the most part so I may have a bad bias there. However, maybe I'll play around and see if I can just Photoshop that part right out. :)

Lol! That could work XD

Do note that I'm a huge lover of either brightly-colored or high-contrast b&w, so I could be a bit biased.
