Many photographers take good photos on dry land, some photographers take good photos under water, and few photographers take good over-under shots. What's the trick to mastering this elusive art? Scubadiving.com shares the following tips:

First, find compelling subjects above and below. Then, look for calm conditions with bright light and clear visibility (use a big glass dome!), and choose your point of focus. Finally, use a small aperture, a fast shutter speed and rapid fire.

Are you a master of this soggy-craft? Vote on your favorite pictures below, or submit your own!

If you think about how they "broke his spirit" just to tame him , and cut half of his tusks, this photo stops looking cute! :(

This picture is one of the wonders of photography. Just seeing the sheer size and beauty of the whale shark in the arctic is amazing.
