January 4th - Scuba Diver

This is at the Coast Guard Pier, in Monterey. He was just coming out of the water. Looks like all kinds of fun, doesn't it? :D

I like the darkness of the rocks to the right contrasting with the brightness on the left

He's well suited up, it must be cold there.
There are nice contrasts here, with the diver, the rocks and the sea.
Great!

Cool picture. Lots of nice contrast and the diver is so sharp. Great job.

No coral or shipwrecks that I know of, and yes it's very cold. 52 degrees, on average. Brrr.

Well spotted but no, it doesn't look like fun. Far too cold!! Good snapping though!

I have 3 divers in my family, they prefer to dive in warmer climates though.

very cool picture, I like how the shadow of the rocks kind of frames the picture into being a triangle.

Really like that strip of blue shadow.

Diving is one of my favorite sports. My big dream is photographing the ocean acquatic life and its explosion of colors and shapes. But using snorkel and apnea. All this equipment that your model is using in your magnificent image is suitable for professional divers. Congratulations on the job!

Great capture of the diver against the waves and rocks in the background. You live in a very interesting neighborhood :)

Good work - love the colours and shapes.

Good stuff. I'm so jealous of all of the beach dwellers. I don't live far from the beach (two hours-ish), but its the Atlantic ocean and boring. The waves are very flat and there are no rocks like in your photo. Very cool stuff, can't wait to see what else you come up with. :)

Great fun. I like how he's standing in the sun and the dark diagonal line of shadow cuts the image in two. Well spotted composition. Well done.

Great use of light and dark (sun & shadows).
