      Love the shot, but the aspect ratio's no good for a poster. As a framed picture, you can't go past blue, but you may crop the bubbles from the diver. My bathroom door would benefit from this shot otherwise.

      "
      More than 100 million sharks are taken from the seas each year. For a group that has been around for the past 400 million years, sharks cannot survive this onslaught because most large sharks reach sexual maturity only at seven years, and then give birth to only a few pups each year.

      Research on the potential effects of the disappearance of sharks from selected ecosystems suggests that the consequences could be devastating for commercially and nutritionally important fishes.

      In the Hawaiian Reefs model, the removal of tiger sharks resulted in a crash in populations of tuna and jacks, due to a marked increase in seabirds, the shark's primary prey.

      In Chinese banquets, over 40 per cent of the meal cost comes from shark's fin soup. The challenge is to find restaurateurs who would take on the responsibility of saving sharks by sourcing an alternative dish which still allows them to sustain banquet profits.

      With China's 1.2 billion people gaining in affluence and holding to the tradition of shark's fin soup at celebrations, I don't give the 453 remaining species of sharks much of a chance. "

      what deadly symmetry and beautifully captured and compositioned... even though its about sharks, it still reminds me of the William Blake poem "Tiger"

      nice shot

      I like the position of the bulls to each other, couldn't have asked them to get in a better position.
