UPY 2016 Wide Angle - Commended
'Seven' - Mathieu Foulquié

Regarding this photo, I'm often asked if it is just a photomontage... nothing more easy indeed, with today's photo editing tools but there were really 7 caribbean reef sharks in the same frame. In the marine sanctuary of Gardens of the Queen in Cuba, sharks follow the divers during all the dive, up to surface where they swim in large numbers under the boat I just slightly moved away, to keep divers out of the frame, and only have sharks swimming in open water rays of light and clear water did the rest.
