Most underwater shots have no more than 2 light sources, the sun and the strobe, and the strobe reall does most of the work. However silhoette's work brilliantly in good water like with this turtle

Great shot, I found myself wishing it were a little more in focus.

ok, it's a cool pic, and well taken, but you already know it doesn't fit the challenge.

Bravo! Creative! Intelligent! Beautiful!

This is really beautiful, but as you said yourself, sunlight isnt artificial! Dont let any low scores detract from the beauty of this shot!
10/24/2002 08:27:00 PM
not perfect in positioning, but over all very very good.

Couldn't have done this any better. Others may not like it that much but it is a 10 in my book - for challenge, overall beauty of photo, and easy eye appeal.

Really not sute this is an artificial light source. good shot tho

Sorry, but IMHO it doesn't work. I think you got more than enough comments so far, which are telling you, that sun is not a artificial light source. So I dont't have to. Apart from it both the turtle and the surface are out of focus and the composition or cropping could be better. But I hope you had a good dive!

I very much like this photo, but giving all the leeway I can, I still can't call the SUN artificial. If this isn't sunlight, I will gladly reconsider my scoring. 5 Swash
