Taken before I actually saw the Beatles Challenge but I thought since I did see a Yellow Submarine I might as well post it, even if technically the shot isn't great.

Thanks Everyone, I thought I'd give you a little background to the shot. I joined DPChallenge a week or so before I went to Fiji for a holiday, on my return (after taking 6000 photos) I found the Beatles Challenge and recalled this shot of was is almost a submarine, I thought it was close enough to sumbit as my opening to the challenge. I wasn't expected much vote why, and infact I think I faired better then the shot deserves.
The actual vessel is called a Semi-Sub, there is a large glass viewing platform below that allows tourist a fish eye view of the coral and sealife, it was taken onboard a small tinny that was ferrying us to a nearby island.

interesting shot but may have been better front lit than side lit

Not really a submarine... I think I know what you are trying to say with this, but it doesn't fit my idea of what the song is about or how it was portrayed in the movie.

Hell of a nice try. Not a submarine, but still a hell of a nice try. Think bringing the clouds out a bit more (overexposing) would have added a bit more interest to the sky.
