A stunning close-up. Well focused on the eyes and together with the black background, make the whole pic looks clean and stand up the subject. Well done.

Filip Staes
I started diving in 1992 and photography became a part of my life around 1997. I made my first underwaterphotos in Sharm El Sheikh with a rented Nikonos. In 2000 I began competing in underwater photography contests. After 25 years in the water I’m still addicted to the underwaterworld. I photograph with a Nikon D7100 in a Hugyfot housing. I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I do 😉
