FISHDOM! Wonderful shot. Must have been scary going in there and being "circled" by the sharks. Love this photo!
A terrific underwater shot. The small fish like shadows, with the ghostly looking hammerhead in among them. This species are definately odd looking bodkin's, who never the less are interesting sharks.I have wondered about their shape, and its function, more than once. Anyway we're here to comment, so........... I think the lighting at the top of the frame makes it a stand out from an already great picture. Thanks Denis. j.e.s.
This is great. I absolutely love underwater photography in B&W because it makes everything look as though it is in the sky rather than underwater.
Hammerheads are one of the top most dangerous sharks and that to dive amongst..... not for me thanks. I made a packt here with the sharks many years ago and that is that "if they stay in the sea - I will stay on dry land"".. Great photo nontheless and thanks for sharing.
There's an aesthetic impression of receding depth in this photo from the gradation of tone towards the light source above the water, and in the silhouettes of the fish.
Only the image of the shark has more form than just a silhouette. Hammerhead sharks as a species have made a great physiological investment in the perception of visual parallax. The shape of their head is very unique.
