At night, underwater... what do I know other than I like this Leda. Good light and sharp colors and details. Regards.

First, I don't know a thing about underwater photography.

I love the composition You've got a little bit of a chiarosucro thing going on with the tentacles disappearing into that fabulous inky black. Just a but of burnout on the bright orange, especially at the point the eye seems drawn to. There is a wonderful delicacy to the pinks, and yellows. Altogether, it's visually stunning.

more underwater shots! yay!

pretty nice. I guess i'm going to have to try my hand at posting some uw shots myself. i like the composition, only complaint is i would prefer the flash to be directed a little to the left of where it is currently centered, and maybe intensity decreased a notch. Pretty tough to do underwater, tho.

i forgot to ask: do you know the species of coral this is, and where the shot was taken?
