    February 2018 Underwater Photography Comp - Sharks, foreign or domestic

    Very pleased to win the first photo comp I've ever put a pic into, very unexpected. Here's Feb's competition, hopefully I've done it correctly.

    The theme - Sharks, foreign or domestic.

    Inspired by a recent trip aimed at shark diving I thought it would make an interesting comp. So, show us your shark pics, big, small, fat, thin and if there's a little story to go with the shot then even better. I've put a couple of examples below to get the thread started.


    This is far from the best shark pic from a photography point of view, but this tiger visited us have just consumed a large whip tail stingray, the tail still hanging from his mouth and a huge tummy as evidence of his meal.



    These two very obliging dogfish let me get very close for this pic without running off which they normally do.

    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    I think I would be pointing the camera at the shark. Or where you signalling "Look behind you."

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Due to Feb being a short month and me going away next Friday, I'll end this comp on Sunday night and put the poll up then to give everyone a few days to vote. I can then let the winner know before I go.

    Get your last minute entries in.
