Hi Rozuki and welcome to Wetpixel

Excellent composition - the movement is good and the octo has "somewhere to go" in the frame.

Blue starts to creep into the sand in the upper right which I understand as a photographer (it's further away and the white balance was done on the foreground sand w/ very little water in the way) but I don't like as an average joe viewer.

Keep posting your great work.

Cheers

Great photo Rozuki!

If there wasn't any blue in the background I would hardly know it was shot underwater!

Welcome to Wetpixel :D

Nice capture....I like the expression of movement over the sand bottom
