Nice shot, Felix!

I know, I know - you will tell me it was pure luck. Well, yes, of course you need luck - like in this case just two barracudas facing each other. But you squeezed the shutter at the "decisive" moment (Henri Cartier-Bresson) - decisive because you had one 'cuda against a light background, and the other one in front of the dark coral wall.

Felix took the photograph on one breath of air with a manual analog camera, a good old Nikonos V, and the blessing of available light.

With images like this one - is there any reason to switch to digital?? :-) :-) Felix will, eventually, but I won't...
