Date With Dolphins
Date With Dolphins. In Kaikura, New Zealand they have tours where I was able to go swimming with the Dolphins. This was one of the highlights of my time in New Zealand. The only downside was having to wake up before the sun came up and walk a couple kilometers to where the pickup point was. But the actually dolphin part was awesome
This shot was taken very early in the morning on the way to where the dolphins hang out. It’s a single image that I have tweaked heavily. I used Lightroom, Photoshop, and Macphun’s Intensify CK bring out as much detail and colour as I could in this image. I also used a graduated filter in Lightroom for the first time! I know I should have be using this already, but I never got around to playing with it till now. It allowed me to brighten up the area below the horizon while keeping the sky the tone I wanted.
