With all the movement of the water at the top of the frame,the shark is in calm waters giving Imran a perfect shot at it. And making a great portrait all together. An effort worth looking at, so thank you. j.e.s........
Very nice...Pretty good photos require advanced knowledge on digital cameras. However, it is not difficult to start learning and futurely becoming a master.
What as great photo! The black, gold and silver palette, the amazing patterns and shapes in the water surface, the composition, the incredible clarity, the sense of motion in the water and the shark. The rich blackness above and below the water surface removes the impression of depth. My eye reads the water surface as a flat abstract image. I see what seem like a half dozen tiny mask heads floating near the right end of image of the water surface.
The shark reads as being in a three dimensional space, with its shadow cast on the sandy bottom. The shark's eye seems to have just taken notice of the viewer of the photo. It looks wary and a bit startled.
What a great photo!
