    A few of my manta ray silhouette shots from my recent trip to the Socorro Islands. I am going to print whichever gets the most likes at ~20x30 on aluminum. I will fix any backscatter etc first.

    All were shot with my Panasonic GH5 with an Olympus 7-14 F2.8 Pro

    Great stuff. Number 3 but photoshop the fish out which is touching the manta ray.

    #1 just does such a great job with that iconic shape. It's very graphic. Can't help but vote for it.

    I like number 4 cropped a little more. Great job on all of them!

    I like #4 (#5 in the thread count) because it's the most dynamic. Crop out the lower left corner to de-center the manta and open up the space into which he is going, remove the fish (is that a shark?) from the tail area, make some level adjustments, clean up the backscatter and I think you'll have a wall winner!

    Good stuff! That is a bucket list place for me to dive. Did you go on the Solmar?
