Big Fishing

by Bill Funk

<span class="small">The guy on the right actually had something on his line that was still in the water. I shot the Dolphin at an aquatic show in the Algarve a year later. With Photoshop, I positioned it to follow the gaze of the other guy. It was impossible to import all the tiny splashes and droplets with the dolphin photo, and I spent many hours to clone these in from a series of selected ones. Lightning in background was drawn with Photoshop tools.</span>

    Merci Ricky encore une fois... en tout cas, j'aurais voulu faire cette photo avec un requin, mais je ne travail q'avec mes photos à moi. Le jour que je fais un sortie scuba, je le changerais. Et maintenant, un petit saut chez toi pour voir ton c

    Ah yeah, I did an image I named "life bulb" that has some water streams and droplets I made with the cloning/brush tool as well. I wish they didn't spend a whole week to accept it though. It still has that darn * beside it. >:[

    Thanks Peter. For sure I was lucky to get such a dramatic sky in the mix, and I was already happy with the picture without the dolphin. I don't think my shutter speed was all that fast-probably around 1/500 sec. The droplets look frozen because I to

    HAH, i love this image. The dolphin photo is absolutely amazing. My camera never has the shutter speed for those kinds of shots. The clouds on the horizon line look awesome as well.

    Thanks Jan. It's true what I put in the first comment (alas, John is no longer with us!)... the sky was not manipulated-it was shot on film which probably introduced its own vibe to the colors. Maybe I should actually tone it down a bit, but as you

    Dramatic picture and very well put together! At first I thought the sky was to blue but when you look at the hole picture and the guys shirts it works fine. The look the guy on the left makes is great.....he is realy amazed. Good job!

    Thanks Kurt, and it was a labor of love. Unfortunately you can't see the detail very well with this jpeg low resolution. And for those who are concerned...DISCLAIMER: No dolphins were harmed during the making of this image!

    Poor dolphin. ;-) You did a great job, here. Bet it was a lot of work to create all the tiny droplets. -kurt

    Thanks for commenting John. The only things I did with this image were add the dolphin and the splashes and droplets surrounding it (painstakingly, drop by drop!), drew the line from the rod to the dolphin's mouth, and painted in the distant lightnin
