Impressive shot! Eagle rays usually won't let you get this close but this one seems to like you. Nice and dramatic capture.

"Illumination" - There are lots of beautiful swim throughs in Cayman, but I wanted to photograph more than just blue light coming through the back. When I came upon this conch shell in one of the swim throughs, I saw the photo I'd been waiting for.

"The Beehive"
A sponge hangs out from a steep wall as divers pass overhead. If you look closely, you can see an arrow crab peeking out over the edge of the sponge.

That's a great shot. Nice work on the composition here. Underexposing the background was the key to this image.
