    It took me two trips to Tahiti to nail this shot. I waited in the channel for over an hour and the sharks started to pass me frantically. I wanted to make sure to capture the traffic underwater and still obtain the lush landscape of Tahiti. The composition of this shot blew my mind.

    Beautiful split, good composition, and I like the contrast between the light blues underwater with the dark green on the island. It looks like a pristine environment.
