'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.

If you try to line up the sun with the boat, make sure it hasn't come untied from the mooring or you might find yourself far from where you thought you were

Shots taken of a subject between 3 inches and 1 foot (7.5 to 30cm) in size (e.g. large fish or diver head) that dominates the frame - any background is incidental and occupies LESS THAN 50% of frame. (cutting it close on the 50% part, but its macro)

Was it Jaws 3 or 4 where it ate the Helicopter? I layered this mainly because with refraction at the waterline the body didn't line up nicely, but a little Gin made the drone sound fun. The untouched version is in the over/under category..

Tickle me Elmo. Mantas sometimes hover over the cleaning stations as the fish come up to clean them. They seem to like the bubbles sensations-but not here- this guy was nipped by a false cleaner and shot off.
