So this is not Photoshopped. This was shot at night at approximately 90' underwater off of the island of Dominica. This is shot on a Nikonos V on Ektachrome 100. My buddy captured the very slow cow-fish in his hands. I then placed the macro-frame over his hand (in pitch black) and then with a 1-2-3 tap of my fin onto his leg, he opened his hand, and I fired the shot. Technically this was a very hard shot to make as we could not have lights on around us which would affect the exposure making the setup in utter pitch blackness extremely tough.

What a beautiful shot Henry, it looks like the fish is floating in mid air.

Photos are a moment in time, that can only be captured once.

That's what I was thinking Paul. He should have put that on Tony's levitation show today. LOL
