Beware of the Sharks

By Dg
I have no idea why, but this shot makes the word "shark" echo in my mind. Must be my twisted mind... apart from that, any comment and especially critique is welcome. Thanks for viewing!

An inspiring image. The simplicity of the subject is translated into complex colours by the reflection which the shallow depth of field blends together ever so softly.
Sharks have vertical gill-slits that resemble the three slits in the cap of the lighter. Though the sharks invented the idea!

My brain doesn't turn to sharks, but I do see deep waters in that blue/black reflection.

Very cool, I could easily imagine this as an album cover. Keep up the good work!

What an intriguing image
I can see where you get the shark idea.. But for me it is a bit deeper.
Lovely work from you
