Amrita's Thoughts:

Pulau Sipadan is every diver’s dream destination in Malaysia, as it is the federation’s only oceanic island. The Kapalai Dive Resort, boasts impressive panoramic views and powdery white sand. Coupled with the psychedelic colours that accompanies each sunset, it’s an inspiring setting for creative photography. The FE 16-35mm F2.8 G Master wide-angle zoom lens was the right glass for the occasion to capture the vastness of the seascape. The high-resolution lens captured foreground details crisply while rendering the background into creamy bokeh. The fast and precise autofocus feature of the lens was perfect for candid shots. I photographed the frantic paddling of a local guide as he made his way to warn unsuspecting snorkellers of the incoming tide. It was a one-shot moment that could have been missed easily had the autofocus not worked quick enough. I was able to capture this scene without compromising any other details of the waters in the background. The lens allowed me to photograph the illuminance and vibrancy of the seascape set against the setting sun.
