2006-10-07 - Whale Dance

One second of whale breaching action, captured at 5fps...

A few more details on this shot: it is composed of 5 separate photos taken in a high speed burst and combined in Photoshop (could do with some more work). Up until now, I haven't had much need for the D200's five frames per second but in this case it proved invaluable.

Heath Nice work!
Fred heh, you can just about see (on fairly close inspection) that there is evidence (only after you've mentioned it) of editing in the form of the photos being stitched together. However, that doesn't spoil the shot or anything.. I like the sequence. At first, I actually thaught this was 5 seperat whales. Where were you when you photographed these?
