Those are very nice images. I usually don't care for the HI MOM shots of divers, but yours is nice because the diver is looking at the clown fish...interaction. I love it. Color is good. Composition is also good. Nice work.

Thanks Joe, the person in the pic is my son, it took a while to get him to look at the fish and then have them in frame. It was our first dive together on the Great Barrier Reef.

Oh yes was using a Canon G4 in Ike housing.

Those are great shots!

I really like the second, really shows some great motion. You have done a good job at not bullseyeing the composition (smack in the middle) and the third shot with your son is also a good example of a well thought out composition.

I really like the 1st one the best I would crop 20-25% of the top and a little on the left side. THe 2nd is composed great, the lips are a little hot but still a nice pic. Pic three has two subjects fighting. The depth of field is too great . Maybe selecting the fish in P.S. inverse then try some slight blur on the diver to place the focus on the fish.
