I use to have a few chromodoris in my reef tank. This one here looks very cool. Must have been awesome seeing it in its natural environment. TFS.

this is a wonderful chromodoris. never seen anything like it. the picture is also very clear and well composed.


Wonderful capture with very good details and - unusual for underwater photography: excellent, perfectly contrasting, rich colours.
Very good contribution, interesting, unusual, and very appealing.

Hi Kris!

Splendid close-up. Shaprness and exposure cannot be better. Tight cropping and simple composition are very effective. Excellent details all over, in highlight as well as shadows. That 5D in the hands of a talented photographer, can only makes great pictures.

Excellent work and TFS.

Incredible subject, Krzysztof. Very well done by you. 10/10 ! Thanks.


Hi Krzysztof,
What a very strange specie !
It looks like a mixture snail/octopus... with eggs decoration !
Thanks for sharing this unusual shot.

Very good shot. The colours of all of your photo are really strong. Nice work, bye Tom

Hello Kris,
I'm not very keen on underwater photography but these places no doubt are very exceprional and I can understand that some people can love them very much. Especially because of all these great creatures that can be found there. This is a lovely example. Picture has great POV and very good details.
I like it!

Oh! Such an interesting creature! It has great colours! You have great underwater shots Krzysztof! I like underwater world too! But I do snorkelling only! Great shot! Thank you,

This is a great photo, an interesting subject and super clear and sharp.
I would expect nothing less from such equipment!
I am wondering how much your housing cost...nearly as much as the camera?!

Beautiful pic...my knowledge about underwater photography is limited. Though made a little workshop concerning framing the image to become in my opinion a better compo.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
But very beautiful capture...well photographed wonderful creature of the sea!

These sea slugs aka nudibranchs are outstanding!
I remember playing with them while diving in Bahr Ahmar
