    Nice one Norbert! How did you manage to get the flash sync at 1/1200s ?

    Ah, ok. :-) The image would look a little bright for 1/1200s. (You can delete my comment if you like and I’ll recommend, since that one is now obsolete.)

  • Yes you’re right! Thank you for the offer. I think it’s O.K. this way.

    Beautiful shot!
    Is it an aggressive shark or one of the more calm ones?

  • Thank you. They are real predators too but I never felt aggression against divers.
