[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another photo of the same Hawksbill turtle I previously posted. This time it was kind enough to pose for me!
Auto-level in PS went some way to correcting the lack of red in underwater shots, I've added some more, then re-size & USM

Lovely!! Classic pose.

Is she posing or dancing for you, Andy? Great shot

That's not a pose, it's a dance! Made me laugh out loud - brilliant!
A great shot.
Her colours are amazing, a real apple green.

Quite a reasonable underwater capture and the PP you have done looks OK to me.

Never have I seen such antics from a turtle! And the look on it's face - so proud? Great capture. TFS

Nice pose o the turtle. To bad that the details of the turtle itself isn't 100%

Try to use an external flash while diving, it reduces the backscatter and enhance the colours.

Andy, a very nice title to this very nice pic.

Excellent pose, dof and pov.

Since I even don't know how to swim, I think that taking a shot like this is a privilege...

Excellent pose, very beautiful composition,
amazing colors, details and exposure.
Regards, Krzysztof.

Looks like the Hawksbill was posing just for you.
An external flash could possibly have enhanced the colours. ( Minor issue. )
Otherwise, a job well done.
Best regards,
