This is a beautifully executed photograph. I like the precise choice of framing and exposure, the water turbulents stretching to the left, as well as the tension: where are the crocodiles?

7 Tips for Better Marine Wildlife Photography
I’m an ocean girl. To me, there is no better way to spend a summer day than to get out on the water and explore the mystery that is the deep blue sea, and hopefully experience some of the majestic creatures that live in it and on it.

Whether you are photographing on shore or from a boat, there are a few tips that will help you improve your marine wildlife photography. Underwater photography, though, is an entirely different thing, with a different set of techniques, that are not covered in this article.

Twilight at Bisti Badlands, New Mexico. I love the way the clouds echo the shape of the hoodoos!
