[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, this is another one from my dive trips. ;-)

I was looking around, swimming gently towards the coral reef when suddenly, a spotted a string ray on the sand.

I dove deeper, and manage to approach the ray slowly and peacefully, not to scare it and the other fishes and while keeping this in mind, tried to take the best photograph I could.

I find the composition interesting, although I could have better frame the 1/3 rules a bit better. The fish on top of the ray kept swimming on his top, probably looking to eat some small fishes.

wow. and interesting species in clarity. good clarity and angle. tfs.

A very graceful picture Eric. I wouldn't worry about the rule of thirds. This is a great exception that works. The light is good to this picture and the clarity. I can see a long way back giving the viewer the anticipation of where the fish are headed. Great shot Eric! TFS Trevor
