Nice but on my monitor, the blue and red needs coming up a touch to make the foreground pop.
Would have been great to see the diver a bit higher, his profile echoing that arch in the rock with a bit of green below him.

Yes, very nice indeed!

I would think about darkening the dead-men's fingers because they merge with the upper arch, reducing the impact of the image and making it difficult to see what's going on, especially for anyone who hasn't dived cathedral rock. Go on, it's what Photoshop's for....

... this is my rough attempt to exaggerate the difference between the off-camera lighting and the on-camera strobe:

I really like the blend of four sources of light into a balanced composition.
