A Loggerhead Sea Turtle shortly after taking a breath. These animals are my absolute favourites.

Thanks everyone. Have a bit of a confession to make though. This should have gone into the manipulated category, as it was my first major reconstrucion effort in PS (usually I just tweak here and there, or stitch panoramas).I normally would have chucked the original, but I find these guys hypnotic. It suffered from green cast, a lousy background that looked like a swimming pool, and it had major motion blur. So the turtle is the only real object here, and it's been 'focused' as best as I could. The background, lighting and bubbles are a complete fabrication. Spent a long time in front of 'The Blue Planet' and 'Finding Nemo'. And now my eyes won't focus properly...

Suggestions on improvements will be welcomed.

PS. It was also shot through glass.

Great shot...confession? Hmmm...ok shot then...as it's still not sharp. But I still like it a lot.
