My latest contribution, after struggling with the swell and murky waters of Mexico (I know, I know, it's meant to be better than this)...

I love that picture of the underside of the ray looking to the surface. Pictures of rays always remind me how graceful and smooth they are...you can even tell in a still photo. I also like the B&W photo which you don't always see in underwater photography because people are always trying to show off the colors. But in this case, the B&W works great. Nice work!

Thanks, but I have to admit that I tend to only shoot monochrome when the conditions don't let me shoot in colour...

... here, so much backscatter around Los Islotes that I abandoned my strobes, had to underexpose the sea-lions, and concentrated on contrasty shapes. That's pretty the much the same reason I shot black and white on the wrecks of Scapa Flow last year:
