This is really neat. I like your composition. The only problem I have with this is it feels a little dark around the rocks that don't have the highlights. Maybe a little bit brighter so that they would stand out just slightly more? Perhaps it's just my personal preference.
Regardless, I really like this. Good work. = )
I went remember snorkeling in the keys when I was really young...I know Margaritaville was nearby, but other than that I forget where it was. Such beautiful wildlife there. I'm jealous of this picture.
This is incredible! And to me, this is proof that the rules of composition don't always need to be followed. One of the photography magazines I read have a feature in every issue where they critique readers' photos, and every single month they slam someone's photo because the horizon is in the center. They way they write, I think they beleive that a centered horizon automatically excludes a photo from being good. This is perfect just the way it is, regardless of what the rules say.
