message this message is importantHi Cynthia
You have requested a critique on your image. As I have mentioned to others I appreciate the subject matter. I love sharks!
In reviewing your image I see a few things which need to be corrected and taken into consideration when photographing large animals such as sharks.
1. The closer you can get is always best. This will help when shooting without a flash or strobes
I think you will find that with added lighting the image will be brighter and in focus. Although the tail end leaves one wondering where the shark is headed a frontal shot would be better. I think that lighting is the key issue in this image. I think that once you provide more lighting , focus, color your image will be much better.

I hope these thoughts will help you produce amazing images! Please keep shooting and sharing on this site! Save the Sharks! TN Diver
