Wow! Such an awesome shot! It's looks unreal! What a great perspective. how did the water end up looking like that? I know it said you had a 1/250 exposure, but it looks so still and crispy, yet smooth at the same time. Such great colors and light differential from the main part of the composition versus the far side where the water was smoother and the light was darker.

Behind The Lens

Location
Bonaire island, Dutch Caribbean,from the water.
Time
The shot was taken at sunset.
Lighting
I used just natural light.
Equipment
Canon 7D with 10-17mm @10mm in a Underwater housing EasyDive Leo2.
Inspiration
The caribbean sunsets are beautiful, so I tried to picture them from a different perspective to give more depth of field.
Editing
Yes, minimal adjustments in Camera raw: blacks, shadows, highlights and vibrance.
In my camera bag
For topside photography: Nikon D800, Nikon 24-70mm f2.8, Tamron 70-200mm f.2.8, polarizers, UV filters, Raincover, remote control shutter and Goripod focus. For Underwater: Canon 7D with 10-17mm @10mm in a Underwater housing EasyDive Leo2 with two underwater strobes.
Feedback
This kind of shots are difficult to achive. I take them from water ( being in the water) with heavy and bulky UW gears. Floating at surface, I hold the housing above the water trying to keep the dome-port clear from water drops and focusing at hyperphocal. The higher is the speed shutter the better it is ( at the lowest possible ISO).
