A picture of my fins the first time I put them in the Great Barrier Reef. I'd been planning the dive for years and was excited to finally be there. The water was bluer and clearer than I expected. Shot with my Canon 60D in an Ikelite housing.

Despite the appearance, the white background is not artificial. The water is so full of small algae that the strobe reflects almost entirely when angled. This shot is with 3 strobes to illuminate the subject too
Third place Monthly HotShots shortlistedShortlisted!

Editor's Comment
Very impressive technique! White background with minimum post processing is very hard to achieve, especially while lighting up the subject so well.
