35 Wondrous Split Images Showing The Beauty Of Two Worlds

Under the thin line that separates our world from the watery kingdom lies such magnificence and beauty that we often forget is there. Scuba divers best know just how exciting and wonderful the ocean floor can be, but many prefer the beauty of the land. So, some creative photographers developed a technique that shows the best of both worlds.

With the “split-shot” or “over-under” photography technique you get some stunning images that you’ll be hard pressed to recreate even with Photoshop. To capture what goes on over and under the water at the same time, these photographs are taken with wide-angle or fisheye lenses with big dome port.

But don’t think that just anyone can take stunning split images. Capturing clear images in different densities at the same time is much harder than it looks.

And that photographing skill is what makes these breathtaking images eve more amazing.
