[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.

Andy,
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,
Mario.
