This picture is a 3D remake of a photomontage seen on the web. The original is seldom seen complete and so it was hard to do research on it. The complete original montage shows the dialogue between the whale and a diver over a sunken illuminated asian city. I only found that the humpback whale in the oiginal photomontage was shot by Rita Kluge (www.ritakluge.com). The artist who made the original photomontage is unknown, at least for me, I couldn't find him or her.
I replaced the city by a young woman, which stands for the free mind of the diver and the the wish to be as free as a whale, even in that times.
All figures was made with DAZstudio, the humpback model is from 3Dboard.de. Asembled and rendered in Vue, postwork in Photoshop & Fireworks.
