Cenote light. A great add on to an Isle Mujeres Whaleshark trip are the Cenotes. Since no strobes are allowed with the Whalesharks I left them home and shot natural light in the Cenotes with a high ISO (1600) and a fast wide lens.

Big clam for here, and more open than you usually see them. Dome was an inch away.

Blast off. Dolphin always look cute and cuddly in pictures. Swimming with them they convey pure power, and the intelligence to know they needn't fear anything in the Ocean. I wonder why they are friendly to humans.-we've never done anything for them

A watering bowl at a dog park was the only water I could find in Over The Rhine for the 2016 Fotofocus exhibition- "Alice in OTR- visions of the fantastical" was the theme for a group of photographers shooting the historic district in Cincinnati Ohio

Looking for tidal pools to shoot didn't work out for me, but the outgoing tide makes a shiny reflection on foggy mornings.. Canon beach in Oregon.

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.
