'ABSTRACT' Often I am captivated with the colours, textures and shapes of our coral kindoms - beyond the sheer beauty of its free-swimming inhabitants as this image attempts to demonstrate. Housed Nikon F; 55mm auto-micro Nikkor lens.

Near the bow gun on the Fujikawa Maru, I found this beautiful coral so I asked my buddy to swim to the other side and look back. Canon ixus 100 and single inon d2000 strobe.

Beautifully composed and elegantly edited. Most romantic shark photo I've ever seen!

Octoporn. I would have preferred a different category for this image, but these mating Octopus blend into the reef and rock so well that the image is too busy. I used brushes to try and obliterate the rocks and release the Octopus from them..

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.

True colors. No PS here, the light on the background sharks has passed through water enough to absorb the warm colors, giving a cool blue caste. The close shark not so.. it could be balanced in LR but I like the contrasting colors and odd lighting.

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.
