A little over-sharpened for me, Fred, making the background rather noisy, but still a fine capture. Carol

Hi Valery (ValeryAst), thanks for the comment, the photograph with the dolphin was taken at Mundo Mar, Benidorm a couple of years ago by the resident photographer, the only occasion I have swam with dolphins, Carole my wife has had 4 sessions with them, a great experience,
Fred.
