Jeff,

Nice image, but needs more cropping.

Also, appears to be a squid.

Personally I like the amount of dead space in the picture. It gives the effect that the cuttlefish/squid is coming out of the blue void. I like this shot very much.

Hi,

I like the image, but I also think that it needs more cropping. I think that you can still get the effect of the squid coming out of the void with an asymmetric crop. I gave it a try (also increased the contrast a little bit). See what you think.post_19888_1219188419_adj.jpg

Thanks for the tips and I like your crop better as well as the contrast adjustment... Thanks for the help!
