    Hi All,

    Recently I had the opportunity to see some whales in the wild off the east coast of Australia on the migration south. All photos taken with the EPM1, VF3, and the Oly 40-150mm 4/3rds lens with adapter at base ISO. Most are approximately 50% centre crops. Sometimes a little more DOF is a great thing, as long as the shutter speed is high enough.

    There was a lot of mediocre shots due to the boat rocking continually and the nature of the whales launching instantaneously from the water, but still a few sharply focused shots.

    Image PP was with LR using the newly acquired colour profiles for the EPM1 from Huelight. These profiles definitely lift the colours without overdoing things IMHO.

    Most of these shots were of mothers and babies; all are Humpback Whales.
