[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At a depth of less than 12 inches, enough sunlight came to illuminate the red and yellow parts of the flower.
The trick was to keep the shutter speed high enough to avoid motion blur, as I was snorkeling and not wearing a weight belt.
Nevertheless, I like the dark background, diffused light, and off-centre subject.

Hi Diverjohn,
the name tells us one of your hobbies! This is really a great shot with good colors and an interesting POV.
It's just a pity that we can see your hand - maybe you hold the flower with the other hand, so we cannot see it (It's easier to demand, than to do under water, isn't it?)

Considering this is an underwater shot, I find it quite impressive. Good work John.

Magnífica imagen y estupendo POV.
Bellos colores con un BG sensacional que hace que destaque la flor.
Un saludo, JL.
