Below the shark

By Rhythm  
Taken in a "glass tunnel" at The Deep in Hull (trying to shoot anything through three inches of perspex is HARD). I'd have liked more time to stay and perfect the shot, maybe with a tripod setup, but as I was being hustled and busteld by other visitors this was the best I could come up with.

In my opinion, this needs to be a lot sharper. The thumbnail looks awesome, I'll say that much..

You're right and I wish I'd have had more time with it. It's already gone through some serious noise reduction as the lighting underneath that tank was poor to say the least. I *may* try some more enhancement, but I think it's about as sharp as it's going to get

Not a bad shot. Its very difficult to get decent shots in aquariums, I've tried many times. Best place is inside the tank with the sharks, takes away the problem of the glass! One of the best dives I've done was at Blue Planet, Cheshire. Have a look at these:

Nice one Dan; I've tried taking some like that at the blue planet. As you have no control over where the sharks swim, or other people I think you have done very well.

Good job under tough conditions. I've tried this with no luck!
