My first dive in the Philippines was amazing, sitting on the reef was this beautiful nudi, begging to be taken a pic of. Lots of current, back scatter and many divers added to the challenge.

Walking along a lonely stretch of beach, a boat and a dog came into view. The beach was by La Celia Honduras. I knew I was going to take a black and white photo, so pushed my settings to deliver the contrast I needed for an interesting picture.
