"Illumination" - There are lots of beautiful swim throughs in Cayman, but I wanted to photograph more than just blue light coming through the back. When I came upon this conch shell in one of the swim throughs, I saw the photo I'd been waiting for.

"The Beehive"
A sponge hangs out from a steep wall as divers pass overhead. If you look closely, you can see an arrow crab peeking out over the edge of the sponge.

That's a great shot. Nice work on the composition here. Underexposing the background was the key to this image.

This goby is not the same which was from Bali (in my previous posts). This goby is from Anilao, the Philippines!
