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.

"Stars Above And Below"
Starfish are seen both through the surface of the water and below. No Photoshop: I used my wide angle dome port for this shot, carefully angling my camera housing in order to get both the over and under water views.
