I love the deep verdant green and the pure white metridiums. Click on the images for more details

I really like the green of those waters. Those "cauliflowers" are an invitation to creative pictures and the first one is a good example.

Whoops! I just checked my dive log, and first image was taken on the Canadian side of the border at a site called Foggy Bay (near Dundas). So that should have read The Emerald Waters of Canada. The second dive was in Alaska proper, off of Baranof island.

Too cold for me Steve. Your colours are vibrant and subjects are sharp.

To improve composition why not think about where in the frame you cut off the base of the anemone. For example in the first shot the anemone is cut off at the base which may look a little awkward. The viewer often likes to see the base of a subject.

hope this helps
