Again, highly underrated. Like I said earlier, not always a fan of underwater stuff but WOWZA. I gave one 10 and this was it.

One of the prettiest squids I've ever seen! I don't normally think of them as attractive beasts.

This is great, it's almost abstract in nature, though that may be because I'm not the most familiar with marine life :)

Wonderful colours and details and it all looks great on black.

Amazing shot. I like how you were able to avoid/clear out any debris in the water. Its also tack sharp.

This is absolutely stunning. I usually find under water stuff kind of boring but this is just exquisite. I rarely give 10's but this deserves one. The focus and colors are perfection. WOW
