    Whale shark encounter. Whale sharks are the largest fishes still living in the oceans. The largest measured had a length of 12.65 m (41.50 ft) and a weight of more than 21.5 metric tons (47,000 lb). The name "whale shark" comes from the fish's size and also because it is a filter feeder like baleen whales.

    This is a beautiful photograph Mato! Well done. I love how the colours beautifully blend through the frame like a rainbow. There is a gorgeous interaction between the scuba-divers and the fish. Here, we see so many people enjoying themselves and having an adventure! Perfect composition, incorporating all elements and allowing us (the viewer) to see the seabed through to the sky beyond the surface. Excellent job!
