[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of my favourite dive shots, even though there's no specific subject. I was on a cave dive and I looked up and that's when you realise how deep you are. Estimated depth only about 20 metres, but it looks a lot more when you look straight up. They say don't look down when you're climbing, well I suppose the opposite applies here. The vegetaion you can see around the edge of the cave are soft corals. A lot of these died off a few years ago but are certainly thriving at this location.

Very nice composition Andy. I also like the framing a lot. I don't dive myself but my brother does and he told me that if you are afraid of heights, you can get into trouble when diving. I didn't believe him until I read your note. TFS!

It's a nice view Andy. I like it too. It gives a feeling of real depth with the fish at different heights and no trace of the surface. There seems to be some noise, have you tried Neat Image?

Well done.
