l like this composition you chose. I have never seen a sea turtle but here we have many living in soft water. The color of the water is beautiful and we can see nice details in its transparency. Like Necip said, it would have been great if it could have showed its little head :) Your notes are interesting. Thanks,

I have never been seen a sea turtle at all..Your focus here is really sharp..so good that its cut through the water to get those lovely front paddles.

A big 'fish' you captured in Costa Rica.
I didn't realise that Sea Turtle could be seen with the carapace so high out of the water. You took a good opportunity to shoot it and the result is a fine sharp image showing most of the features of this Olive Ridley.
Thanks for sharing a sight not often seen on TN and I wonder if this a first for the species on TN?
Have a good weekend,

Wonderful catch of this turtle, excellent details, the colours of the water looks beautiful, I'm surprised how high in the water this fellow is, On a recent trip to Morton Island here in Brisbane I was lucky enough to see a Green Sea Turtle (well the head at least) this is wonderful, nice work, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Excellent shot of this Sea Turtle and the ripples in the water make the image look fantastic. You have won another round in your fishing trip. Great lighting and exposure and the image is tack sharp. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

This is a fine image showing the swimming turtle!
Looks like he is trying to hide by dipping the head, hehehe...
Fine details and a pleasant composition!

Sehen aus wie schwimmende Landschafthügel im Kleinformat. Muss beeindruckend sein, diese riesegen Tiere im Meer zu sehen.

First I am impressed with quality of the image. Water surface and back of turtle are reproduced perfectly. Amazing texture and colour reproduction. All details are excellent. Shot is framed very well too. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Sky, this would really be something to see. Very nice shot of this turtle. I would just love to get a shot like this. Colour is good and between the original and workshop we saw some good detail. Very nicely done.

Great capture with very sharp details and clors. Since you have returned to TrekNature you have presented us with some unusual images which is very refreshing. Thank you for the great work.

Looks like it is a huge turtle, Sky.
What I like most about this picture are the wave patterns and color on the sea.
The sense of movement is palpable in the form of ripples around the subject.
The back of the subject visible above water is also in sharp focus and shows the patterns on it.
I enjoyed going back to this picture.
