So I’m reading Moby Dick (actually, Damion Searls’ fascinating edit of the book called ; or the Whale). This is not a sperm whale (which Moby Dick is); rather, it is an orca whale (or orca vail as Tabitha calls them).
I spent about 15 minutes looking for a cool filter to put on this picture. I toyed with stained glass effects, or a Photoshop’s diffused glass or even ripples (in my head it was going to look stained glass-like). But every time I removed the effect I thought the picture was really good just by itself. So here it is.
