This was my second attempt at the little critter.  Did not fill the frame  but instead concentrated on sharpness of the image.

Another shot from the shore dive with Nina Baxa.  She pointed this out  not much bigger than a pea  so I tried with my 60mm lens  no diopter  to fill the frame with the critter  so I could see what it was.

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
