This shot was taken during this years annual sardine migration. I had removed my strobes due to the backscatter and forgot to add weight, i was sat on the surface whilst my friends were seeing an awesome ball below, i was lucky to nail this shot.

I do not think there is a category for this photograph, it is just a simple picture showing the natural beauty of Uniform coral. Hope you like it. (Not sure I do :))
