“As an underwater nature photographer, I struggled for a new way to bring back visions of fish and fauna. Soon I discovered that taking water out of the picture, rendering it invisible while it is still evident that it surrounds the subject, is a powerful vehicle for driving the viewer's full attention to the subject's character." -- Nature's Best photographer, Pedro Carrillo
