Shutter: 1/160

This was taken while my wife and I were on vacation. We took a Western Caribbean cruise with my family to celebrate my father's retirement. While scuba diving in Cozumel, this friendly guy showed up!

Editing took a considerable amount of adjustment to the color balance. Added a little contrast and brightness, resized, then sharpened.

Other diver a bit of a distraction.

Beautiful shot, love the greens and the great composition. Hope to see this on the front page, I gave this a well deserved 10.

If only that diver was not there it would look much more natural and pure.

Nice, but would be better if the turtle were coming at us...

Amazing capture. Gret colors. I wish that the diver was not cropped off.

Stunning shot, a real shame about the other diver but I guess there was no way that they could be cropped out

Wow - what a beautiful animal - thanks for sharing it. As for processing, perhaps a little more contrast and then selective blur around the edges to make it a bit more 3D.
