I decided that I liked the uncropped version better than the previously posted version. I am open to comments and I have already entered the uncropped version into a contest.
And while I was browsing my photos from the trip, I decided to post another photo "Spy Hopping". For those not in the know - that is what it's called when a whale raises its head above the surface to look around. To see a short slideshow of my trip, go to PHOTOGRAPHER52.COM; enjoy.
Nice capture, Howard. Interesting information.
