4th Place Wide-Angle
The story: I noticed this trumpetfish hunting along the reef and approached slowly as to not disturb it. I could not get low enough to compose using the viewfinder, so I used the dome port's reflection to compose. I noticed snorkelers overhead watching me and to my surprise one of them had unintentionally entered the frame when I pressed the shutter, doing an adequate job of modeling. This composition just happened by chance and would be a very difficult endeavor to recreate.
