    In the shadows of Moalboal a storm of sardines await. The shoal is so immense that when overhead it blocks out the sun. Even the most experienced diver can be awed by the sight. What I love about this photo, is that the figure is my dive master .. he has probably seen the same sight hundreds of times .. and every time he takes a moment.

    Wow! This image really portrays the scale of a bait ball! To me, it deliberates the ocean's abundance, and how much one human stands to take or set aside for the next generation. I think this composition offers remarkable insight into humanity's relationship with the big blue!
