I used a very slow shutter speed and rear curtain sync to give this image an artistic mood due to the combination of motion blur and sharp focus.
This image was taken during a Tiger/Great Hammerhead Shark trip in the Bahamas. Divers hung out behind the boat as a chum slick attracted the sharks. I looked back toward the boat and captured the sun rays coming down from around the boat.
