    When you take underwater pictures, you are focused on your subject and sometime you forgotten environment. It’s funny to observe the others. This day, we looked for blue sharks when suddenly I saw one just behind my buddy. Blue shark is very curious and it comes very close. Blue shark is not dangerous. The greatest danger for it is the fishing.

    I love it, and as Your Shot photographer Shawn Hendricks commented, "This photo works well with the [Caption This] assignment, inviting all kinds of biting comments." Funny Shawn, I am sucker for bad puns. Fabrice, I love how you composed this frame, with so much space surrounding this moment, making it feel like they are alone in the empty sea. The trail of bubbles makes it feel like your friend is swimming fast. When your friend saw this frame, I bet you both had a great laugh. Well done.
