A bemused turtle watching a snorkeller!

I want to stress that I did not upload this photo for its technical quality. I just found it amusing.

I must admit I have never taken a photograph underwater, so I don't suppose I'm really qualified to comment on this underwater photograph. But my lack of qualifications has never stopped me commenting before, so...

Mind you, having said that, I don't know what to say about the technical quality of such a photograph. It looks like a well-taken photograph to me; well-taken underwater, that is. The exposure is OK, but there are no blacks and no whites. The focus is also a little soft. However, I suppose that's about par for the course for underwater photographs.

As far as the composition is concerned, I like the way you have cut off the head of the swimmer; it looks as though the top of the photograph is the surface of the water. However, I don't like the way you have cut off the flipper of the other swimmer; I would have preferred to see all of the turtle.

Many thanks for your feedback, I really appreciate it. However I should have made clear that I took this with a little point and shoot camera in an underwater housing. I did not post it for its technical excellence but I thought it was quite an amusing shot. I am not a particularly good swimmer and the fact that I managed to get this shot is amazing in itself!

Yes, it is a bit soft but I was moving as well as the turtle, so it was the best I could do in the circumstances.

I just love the way the turtle is looking up at the swimmer.
