    Here are a few to get started with

    It's a Sony A200 some of the photos were using the 18-70mm kit lens and some were with the newly purchased 50mm f1.8 lens.

    i think you did really well for low light and moving objects- not easy. what settings are you using? i like shooting in AV mostly and am a bit out of my comfort zone in TV - i dabble with manual occasionally still

    They are all shot in manual mode.

    The first 3 were all set to 1/250 f5.6 ISO 100 (18-70mm kit lens)
    The 4th is 1/160 f1.8 ISO 100 (50mm f1.8 prime lens)
    The last one is 1/100 f4.5 ISO 1600 (75-300mm kit lens)

    I particularly like the first and final shots. The energy in the first, with the larger orca's head entering the water with the smaller orca alongside (showing dimension and size) really appeal to me. Additionally, I like the texture captured in the background.

    The last two I like for much the same reason, clarity of detail and energy.

    I wish I could take such lovely shots! Thank you for sharing them with us.

    My favourite is the middle one, it looks quite graceful which is odd for a HUGE whale Your wife certainly has talent

    I like the one with the whale falling back and you can see his tummy! Very nice shots. Moving objects/people/animals are difficult to shoot.
