I waited until the nudi came to the edge of the leaf, so the edge itself and some black back ground could give the photo some extra depth. I tried to get the nudis face placed in the Rule of thirds. I placed focus on the closest head tentacle.

Come Together! I saw a huge number of shrimp (mating season), on a dive where I had my fisheye on. So I went back as soon as I could, with a 60mm macro to get this photo...
