This shot was taken right as the sun set over the reef on Heron Island. The rays of the sun came through the water onto the Acropora colony, giving it an amazing colour.

Hi,my first underwater housing, so I am new to this style. There is a bridge near me that was built in 2005 that curves around and then goes over the ocean, replacing the road that hugged the cliffs but shut due to rock falls. My bridge portrait!

I found this starfish climbing over mangrove tree roots. Once it got near the surface of the water, I was able to frame the photograph I wanted: both the over-under view, as well as the reflection of the starfish on the surface of the water.

Editor's Comment
A truly unique shot for many reasons. Getting so close to sharks is a special moment itself. The shark almost seems like a ghost. The movements are nicely captured through the turbulences/reflection at the surface. Well deserved winner.

Yap evening splits. We lost a stop every few minutes as the sun set, call out when you notice it in your preview- it's easy to forget to change with the light.
