Hi All,

Try this for a first. Taken on a Motormarine EX11 at around 10metres. I think it was in Kos (Greece) last year...

Last but not least my favourite.

Taken in Stoney Cove quarry U.K. 20 metres down. I was inside the holds of the Stanegrath. A tug boat sunk for divers. I was looking straight up. I think it looks like a painting on a wall..??

I think this needs a subject. The diver in the background is good, but there is nothing interesting in the foreground.

Good foreground composition this time. However, you cut off the head of the diver.

To someone who wasn't there, this is just a photo of a blue square.

Cheers for that..

The last one i will call: "Window to the silent world"..If that makes it more interesting.???

I'm was trying to get used to the 20mm add-on lens. So I'm sorry to that diver. Obviously need a larger lens. (or a better photographer)

Thanks again for the views.

Dive safe

OK, I'm going from memory a few years back now but with the MMIIEX and using that framer on the top of the camera you have to allow for the fact it is higher than the lens and therefore not a true framing. That may be why you decapitated the diver.

I do agree with Herb on the window shot. Maybe a diver in the distance with a light would add depth and a secondary point of interest to the shot.

Cheers

The first image you have a ratio of 2/3rds dark; 1/3 light. I would reverse that ratio. Also try to get the diver looking toward the camera. The blue sea might be a little overexposed

The second image has discombobulated fins in it. I don't like those in pictures. The moray wasn't going anywhere. Wait for the diver to go by or adjust your shooting angle.

The third image would be good as noted above with a subject in it. A diver looking towards the camera or if you could capture fish preferably swimming into the wreck.

Cheers for the tips fella's,

I will admit that when i was taking the pic of the Moray i was looking through he normal view finder as I forgot to fit the framer..Doh! I didn't see the divers until I looked up.. The eel was then on his way back in as I took to long adjusting all those nasty little dials. I was gutted...
