The oceans can offer some jewels to the divers. I found this Brittle Stars (juvenile) shining like jewels on this Azure Vase Sponge night diving the Small Wall, in Bonaire, Netherland Antilles. Hope you like it. Cheers!

I'm happy to be the first to critique this photo. It's really beautiful! Did you increase the saturation at all? I can't decide what my favorite part of the photo is -- either the shadows that reveal the depth and texture of the sponge, or the beautiful blue highlights that lace the edges. Nice frame, as well. This photo is awesome!

Hi Jose,
Very beautiful colors and fine detail in this night shot. Excellent work!
