Sparkle city. Giant Clam at Table Coral city in Wakatobi. It's rare for them to be so nicely positioned for shooting up from very close- very happy to find this one opened up like this

on my way back from Neman's Wall to the Prince Albert where our boat was tied up, I noticed this scorpionfish. Since I had the FE lens on, I decided to try and do a close focus/wide angle shot with him as the subject.

So many elements in this perfectly lit shot. Marine life, diver and wreck in the background! Very well composed.

Very creative shot! Using the background and the sun to create an eclipse-like outer space feeling. That's just awesome!
