Excellent capture of the shark and perfectly clear water & sky! Great shot.

Final RoundThrough to 2016 awards final round judging
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.

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.

Canyon of death. (trying to set a mood there :-)

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.
