!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Dolphins and Whales (preferably wild)

This challenge closed about 6 years ago.

The Challenge

So I meant to do this a while ago, on the heels of seals and sealions but I think that now is the time….

We would like to see dolphins and whales this week please. Preferably wild but of course not everyone can have seen this.

Quick list:

NOT ok…

  1. cruelty, horror, suffering
  2. too much human element in the photo
  3. photos of for example a towel with a dolphin on etc.
  4. Sharks


  1. Dolphins, whales and I guess porpoises if you must.
  2. Real dolphins, whales etc.
  3. Dolphins/Whales in captivity if there is no evidence of cruelty etc. Controversial as that statement may be.
