Playing around on the back of the boat with over/under shots and a playful teenage white shark. Pole Cams are for pussies, real men lay on the back of the marlin board and hold the camera underwater, definitely gets the heart racing.

Editor's Comment
Strong & dynamic shadows, great sunrays without a outburned sunball, good contrast and a great composition. Looks like a double exposure but it's not - No need to play with "tricks" if you know how to use your gear ;-) Impressive shot, Richard !
