    One of the most ex·hil·a·rat·ing photo I have ever shot, I will never forget this moment! These Lemon sharks are between 5 and 9 feet, have no fear of humans. An ocean with sharks is a healthy ocean and should be protected. This photo was shot with an 8mm FE with the sharks being within 6 inches from my dome port. Photo taken in Tiger Beach, Bahamas.

    Dramatic lighting and composition. I like the balance between the underwater strobe light - which gives the sharks a dramatic look - and the sky. I want to echo Darren's comments. Splits are difficult and this image strikes a beautiful balance between surface and underwater. Nicely done.
