Shot on a night dive, so difficult to shoot these guys, you really have to light them up to get the colors and they are always trying to get away :-]. I was lucky enough to get up along side this guy and shot this while finning away trying to keep up. pretty happy cause he went to the surface where I could get his reflection.

Goodness me - I had just presumed this was an aquarium shot. This goes from excellent to unbelievable in my book!

Really neat colors and the reflection helps this shot a lot.

Great vibrant image - I am a fan of shots such as this and this one is really pretty. When I do them, I find preventing my own reflection is absolutely key. I'd be interested in hearing how you set up for this one.
