a lagoon glimpse

Moorea lagoon is one of the most beautiful of French Polynesia. I've spent many hours to get the right shot; a stingray fills the foreground whereas black tip sharks appear in the background. I had to put a big depth of field in order to get everything sharp and in focus, but wanted to avoid high ISO (I hate noise) so needed a lot of light...All these conditions were met on the third day.
