Here's another even less successful one. This one shot from the tunnel where they are all around you. #104725

Colleen Braun 3/8/2004 3:26:36 AM

sharks belong in dark places, actually I like the tunnel one... #413390

Rob Friedman 3/8/2004 3:37:40 AM

Very cool! Nicely composed...I kinda like the dark lighting, it gives the shark a stealthy look. #413397

Patricia A. Kuniega 3/8/2004 3:38:44 AM

They're both great for totally different reasons! I do like the one you posted because it is dark (not too dark!) and mysterious and makes him look stealthy. It captures the essence of the shark. #413398

Gianna Stadelmyer 3/8/2004 3:42:54 AM

I agree! The darkness gives him a more dangerous feel...lurking in the dark, depths of the ocean. Love the composition as well. I would imagine this would be a tough shot to get as dark as it is and with a subject that is constantly moving! Great job! #413403

Kathleen Clemons 3/8/2004 3:44:20 AM

Okay, now I'm going to have the theme from "Jaws" in my head all day... lol
Love the way he's coming out of the darkness, Carolyn. Great catch! #413404

Gabriela Cunha level-deluxe 3/8/2004 4:01:08 AM

WOW! I like both shots!
:) gy #413420

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe 3/8/2004 4:06:24 AM

Thanks Colleen, Rob, Pat, Jan, Kath and Gaby! The first one was actually sitting on a little ledge. I didn't know they did that. It seems to me I heard they had to keep moving. Maybe I dreamed that part. The hardest part was trying to find them as they came out of the dark in time for the digital to catch them before they were out of range again. Not easy, at least for me. #413426

Allan L. Whitehead 3/8/2004 4:09:24 AM

There's something fishy going on here Carolyn. Very well done, my friend. Compostion is terrific and you can almost hear the silence and how this shark is coming out of the dark, from nowhere. Great shot Carolyn - Allan #413433

Dominique Declerck 3/8/2004 4:19:15 AM


I think this picture in full screen size would show better the whole beautiful/strong impression..

.. great picture, Carolyn!! #413453

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe 3/8/2004 4:22:09 AM

Thanks Allan and Dominique! Glad you like the big guys. #413456

Donna J. Taff level-deluxe 3/8/2004 4:39:56 AM

Cool shark; would'nt want to be in that tank. #413493

Jeff Robinson level-deluxe 3/8/2004 4:43:24 AM

Did you go over to the Dark Side on us Carolyn? Nicely done and it does look like the typical place that a shark would live! Jeff #413502

Claudia Kuhn level-deluxe 3/8/2004 4:49:37 AM

For being in the darkness, the shark is very sharp and clear!
Love it! Nice capture. #413528

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe 3/8/2004 4:49:53 AM

Dark side? Me? Sure! Why not? LOL
Thanks Donna and Jeff!!

Carol Brill 3/8/2004 5:05:19 PM

You got the murky lighting here just right, Carolyn, it complements the ominous character of the shark perfectly...and this one looks like he has his eye on YOU!! #414537

Terry R. Hatfield 3/8/2004 5:09:18 PM

Hi Carolyn! This Is A Great Image! The Darkness Does Add To The Danger! #414541

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe 3/11/2005 10:25:33 AM

great shot.Just what I need to see before I hit the ocean. Ive surfed with a 11ft tiger 20 ft away from me and this pic looks scarier(because of the shadows) #1164507

This was my most successful shark shot. Not the best, but I kind of like it anyway. VERY dark in there.
