Why would this be "unseen"? Well, first, it's under 70 feet of water and at this depth, because the water filters the sun light, the red and the yellow cannot be seen unless you bring your own light (a Sealife digital strobe in this case).
I know some areas are a bit blurry and there is backscatter (it was my first scuba trip).

Without the flash you won't see any reds or yellows at this depth. Also, because is water, you cannot lighten up the background - you have to use whaterver ambient light is there.
