a central subject shouldn't be your first choice but I'm being picky. It's a very rare shot!
message this message is importantyou have my vote...

you are a genuine underwater photographer... most people will just jump out of the pool when they see a monitor lizzard... but you dive down and take photo... BRAVO!!!

by the way... this photo looks like the flying spaceship in the movie "independent day"....
