In the Depths by nxxos In the Depths by nxxos
Underwater shot taken at Chayaa Reef Elaidhoo, Maldives. I know the quality is not the best but maybe some of you like it anyway and put it on their desktop ;)

The spot itself was amazing--first you walk on the white sandy beach, then in shallow water until you reach the corals, you snorkel for maybe 20 meters and then the reef just goes down vertically into the deep ocean.


EXIF:

Canon IXY 510IS + Canon underwater case
5mm
ISO 100
1/200s
f2.8

wow thats an anmazing one!
is a shame athat prze performance of the camers is really bad in the edges. And also the dirt in the water that caused those stupid circular reflections.
if only you had housing for your dslr that would be best underwater ever

Yeah that's true--it's a shame that the housing is almost more expensive than the DSLR lol
