message Thank you very much Rico. No, it wasn't a nightdive. As Mediterranean diver you know very well that it's no way to shot a moray eel while a shrimp is cleaning the mouth with an attractive background like blue water. Always the colored rocks disturb and gives a bad contrast to the dark moray. So, sometimes a black background helps to make the subject attractive and when you play with lighting, you can bring some drama to the pic. Ok ok, finally I have to write, in a very few moments a dark background is not always the worst. wink
Best, Roland
