“Double vision” is the name of this photograph which shows a mother whale and its baby but I am not sure which is which? I took this photograph from the side of our whale watching boat which was a large catamaran. I took about 40 photographs of whales and this is one of the few which had two.
These whales are called humpback and they are quite large. These whales are a bit dark in the picture and I tried to lighten then but couldn’t.
Do you noticed the seabird in the top right hand corner?
This photograph was cropped, level adjusted, Sharpened in lab color U. S. M. 75, 1.5,1, and saved for the web.

Nice picture. too bad that the whales are so dark. I added a workshop that lightens them up somewhat but there are not so much color in the darkest regions there.

Original idea Jim... sobre todo por el atinado título.
Oportuno disparo para obtener la simetria perfecta entre ambos animales y un bello y suave colorido, completan una gran captura.

A difficult capture. Takes patience. Nice shot. I think the one on the right is the baby.

Great capture Jim! I think the right one is the baby, but then again, go figure. The bird looks like a crumb in the sea next to those giants...
