Sea Serpent   we had a very close encounter with this banded sea krait   it was not afraid of us as it searched for a meal. Such a great moment   and grateful to get a shot as he swam past.  Cropped and brightened with photoshop.

message this message is important Dear ......,
Thank for your latest submission to the UWP contest smile

You've requested a critique of your photo. How it works :
I will structure my critique into a few chapters and will list some suggested solutions to problem zones ( if there are any ). My critique will be like 2-3 posts in total, please wait with any answers until you see the note 'photo critic completed' - thanks smile

As we photo critics do this job as volunteers, a 'thank you' is always appreciated (no 'thanks' = no more critiques ).

Photo critiques here at UWP are meant to give a helping hand with an analytic review & to suggest solutions. The objective is to see you here as winner one day smile

And here we go ( critique/review starts with the next post ) !

message This is an interesting image. I like the wide angle. There really needs to be more light from the photographers side
It looks as though there is a diver behind with a torch. One strobe might have enhanced this image. The clarity seems to be off and that also would be better if there was more lighting.

The composition is good and the subject is very interesting, looks like there might be quite a bit of good reef where this was taken. The light behind the the coral kinda takes away from the picture, maybe a spot remover might make this a better image. Keep shooting and submitting we love seeing divers and photographers working hard to perfect their shooting abilities!
