A rising star. This was an experiment trying to balance three different light sources - ambient light, a model with the torch and a single strobe illuminating a giant whip coral and the model's face. Canon T1i in Ikelite housing with DS-125 strobe.

Grey Reef Shark, Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos "wheeleri". I was trying to change the contrast of the original photo and stumbled across contour lines which gave it a 'grainy' effect. I liked the confronting/ironic effect of a soft pink shark.

I love Manta ...

by Sean Chinn
Reflection. Taken at night from a snorkelling position at the back of my live aboard boat. We had a light to attract plankton which then would attract Manta Rays. Manta Rays turned up but not long enough to dive but I got in the water with one

When the documantary shooting

by Tom Burd
This photo was taken on a house reef in the Maldives, in an attempt contrast the beauty at the surface and the devastation of the coral bleaching below. It's hopefully an alarming, appealing and educational photo at the same time.

by Tim Steenssens
Divers use a boat. The light of the boat attracts plankton. The plankton attracts manta rays. Manta rays attract divers. So things have come full circle.
