Octopus

I was on a night dive when I got this shot...

These guys are just incredible animals...As I slowly approached him to get a photo, in an instant, he changed the texture and color of his skin to match the reef around him.

That is outstanding - would be already super, if shot on land with dry feet! But delivering it underwater is just inspiring.
Now I'm off to dive in my bathtub in search for an octopus.
Cheers, Klaus

Great photo. Beautiful.

Lighting, contrast, color, sharpness, etc. You get the picture.

Nice job,

One of the best photos I have seen today. In fact, I see several on your blog that are just perfect as far as I am concerned. You don't need much in the way of coaching or suggestions. You have done your homework and the results are telling.

Something different from me
