Realmente muito boa!!!

Excellent! Very good details, remarkably rich and well balanced colours. Perfectly minimalized composition. A delight to see the turtle and its smaller fish companion sailing through the waters of the sea with perfect elegance. Thank you for this unusual contribution!

Hi Peter, this brings up good memories of diving in malysia. I think its a very nice shot. Maybe you could crop it a little bit for the impact but i dont know if you loose information. Must be a great experience to shoot with the nikon while diving. Thanks for posting. Reina

The Composition here is excellent. I like the contrst in colours between the subject and the BG. A very colourful pic, showing great detail, sharpness, POV and DOF. A lovely pic indeed! TFS, Sheriff

great shot,good contrst and details.

I like this one even better than the other picture of this turtle. Superb colors and it's so sharply focussed. Wonderful stuff.
