I took this shot as part of an experimental series I did in Sydney, Australia, in the aquarium. As you walk through the water tubes, the sharks swim past or above you, often against the natural sunlight coming in from the sea above. This shot is dark, but I really loved the feeling of the silhouette against the light. It felt very surreal to be there.

this is definitely my favourite
im madly in love with sharks among the other predators like crocodiles, the big cats, snakes, etc . swimming with great white sharks is my ultimate dream. hopefully i can atleast go down in the cage with them in the next few years :)
your wide angle is working so good here
i hope you have more like this one
at the first glance at the thumbnail i thought it was a bull shark, but i feel t's actually a nurse shark. do you have any idea which one it is?

Indeed very tempting to take a look over there thanks to this unusual shot and your note, a real TE photo with good POV seeing the glas tube and the shark.
