2 beautiful reef sharks happen to cross and block the sunball while clouds and a shadow of the boat is visible through the calm surface. Having so much natural light coming through the clear water, I turned off my strobes and captured this effect.

Kelp beds
This shot was taken near the Breakwater in monterey, ca.
this was taken around 20 ft down as I was descending with a canon a570is w/o a strobe. I loved how the light changed to an eery green as you went down below the kelp.
