 Pink Peppermint 
I set off to photograph a peppermint shrimp  and looked inside dozens of vase sponges until I finally found this one. I used a small aperture to keep just the eyes in focus and blur the background into a soft pink.

message Hi everybody, my name is Giuseppe (or Joe, if you prefer), I live in Southern Italy and am at my first underwater shoots.
I request your criticisms to understrand all the way I have to walk to make underwater photography. I am very happy to be in this site, because can imagine that only thank to the useful suggests of all you my tecnique will get better.

For exemple, do you see something wrong in this image? If yes, what? What have I to do to make it better?

I need you every time I will post a shoot, if possible.
Thank you very much and SEE YOUUUUUU.

(and please excuse my english/american)
Giuseppe

message Hi Guiseppe. I don't know what Alex is on about, but this photo looks good to me. The piece of sponge looks like the 'Gonzo' character in the Muppets. It's very good.

message Hi Brian, Thank you again. I visited the site you suggested to me and I think that it's ideal for my purposes.
You're perfectly right about the muppet's character of my mask. Is seems also another marsk of italian carnival...

My camera doen't allow the TTL control of strobe, so I have to work with it manually... And without tank, sometime, like this one.

Byebye and thank you again

Giuseppe
