i like the blur, shame about the fin on the right side, is it a fin? its a bit distracting, the blur on the shark works for me

Works for me, though the blurred diver (?) on the bottom right doesn't really add anything to the image. Would work nicely as part of a portfolio, I think.

i like the first image better before crop. can you use a photoshop brush to get rid of the divers' fin instead?

I think that the image works with no distractions and plenty of blue space around the shark: pretty much the same impression as Mike and Simon, I think.
