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.

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.
