Hi Luis,
What a great photo. The difference in color of the sea is amazing. I like the sharp all the way at the bootom of the photo and the sky at the top. Good POV and DOF.

Hi Luis,
Excellent shot, I think for a lot of people it would be tempting just to point straight at the shark, but your reaction here has been fantastic. The composition is excellent, as are the colours. Another great shot!

Contigo e sempre a bombar mais uma em grande estilo

Beautiful color mixture. The variance is stunningly interesting.

Hi Luis, magnificant place and a very nice capture. Congratulations with this shot.

Then you had best stay in your lodge! That's about as close as I would want to venture. Did you use a polarizer filter? There are some really nice colors in this image, though the sky looks a little over saturated to me. Thanks for sharing such a unique subject and sharp interesting image.

I do wish that it had significant notes about the subject posted. It is part of TN to teach others about the subject you have posted, even if its just a description of how you took the photo,and prepared it for viewing here,and where you found it, especially if you want a name for a plant or animal it helps to know some thing about its enviroment and size. Look round at some of the higher scoring people and images to see what is considered a good note.
Hope this is of use for future posts.

Most of the photograhers take tight frme of the subject, but you have to show the environment where it lives, like here Luis has shown very nicely. This is the kind of work i like. I wish you should have cut down little blue. Do not turn the Filter full always! good shot.Mr. Robbrown mentioned correctly, that, if you give details of your picture, it is more educative.


Bonjour Luis!

Bonne prise,la couleurs de l'eau est très jolie et la clarté de nous laisse bien voir le spécimen.



Awesome! The shark is centered in the photo, which really gives it some cool composition. Good choice of lens, too! The only problem with this is that, in my opinion, you should not have used the polarizer. It makes shadows in places you don't want them (such as the shark) and makes the water hard to see through. Other than that, well done! I really like it! :D

Excellent picture, good timing with the shark, good colour and composition, well done
