message this message is importantHi,

A well known wreck to me. see it at least ones a month. Problem with shooting the wreck is that it' s slightly to deep hence lack of colors. You probably did the right thing by changing it to B&W.

I like the angle of the wreck and the diver with torch definitly is a good addition. However you have the wreck very centralised. Having it more positioned to the right would in my opinion give it a better composition. the same could hve been managed by tilting the camera in portrait mode.

technical;
Exposure 3; colors NA; Sharpness 3; DOF 3; contrast 2

Suggestions;
Try to get closer (fisheye lens is very handy) try to decentralise your composition.

All in all, I like it but don't think it will win the competition.

Happy bubbles, Dray
