The USS Kittiwake has a ghostly feeling in black and white.  I love this wreck in Grand Cayman and continue to dive it every time I am there.

Pipehorse Portrait - My first pipehorse!  This little guy is less than an inch long, and is very hard to spot with an untrained eye. The background is white from my strobes reflecting off the sand.

"Diorama"
A Caribbean reef shark cruises the deep wall. To me, this image is reminiscent of the engaging dioramas at the Museum Of Natural History.

Enlarge to see detail: I used a remote strobe to light up this scene inside the galley of the Kittiwake shipwreck. I wanted to add some depth to the shot, so used a tiny bit of strobe to illuminate the rusted table in the foreground.

Divers explore "Orange Canyon", a dive site named for its gorgeous, bright orange elephant ear sponges. I dialed up the shutter speed a bit to make the blue a darker shade, in order to provide more contrast against the orange.
