I took this shot on a boat between Gili Meno and Lombok, which is east of Bali, in Indonesia. It was very early in the morning, and I took this shot half asleep, not thinking this could become anything "serious". Turns out it's a nice picture. A perfect conclusion to a week of diving one of earth's most beautiful archipelagos.

|Focal length:||46 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/500 sec|
|Notes:||The shot was taken with a very basic point and shoot. I used aperture priority mode because I knew the sweet spot of the lens. I unfortunately forgot to set it on RAW. I then edited it in Aperture 3, using Silver Efex Pro: Black & White, vignetting, a few curve corrections, added grain to cover the horrid noise and that's pretty much it.|
