    Hi

    This is a scan from a 35mm Fuji Provia transparency taken on a dive in Grand Cayman. The coral is a large specimen of Elkhorn Coral, one of the more common types of hard coral found there.

    Lovely, great shot... I really like how you framed the boat in with the coral.

    Excellent lighting, great framing, that is some CLEAR water you are in there.

    KEEP THEM COMING!

    Oh yes. Let me underline that ;) - to stress it even more.
    This is a beauty! And that outline of the boat makes so nicely obvious that you were not in any aquarium or so, but really down there with your camera! The blue is wonderful.

    Love the angle, looking upwards to the coral, the bottom of the boat, and the beautiful deep blue colour of the water near the surface.
