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 !

This is what you get when you begin a dive with your best super macro lens and you are then visited by an inquisitive napolean wrasse on your safety stop.
