Creative U/W Photography

Challenge #8 in the WaterWorld series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
... Challenging you to show your vision of underwater scenery. It may be real or surreal - as you wish. You may add to, or subtract from an underwater photo, create imaginary views of life and places that belong more to your dream than to the real World under the surface. We are honoring the usual 2nd day proceedings of a typical Underwater Photo Contest (1st part was dedicated to Photo Fish Hunt). Divers were free to photograph anything they desire, as long as it was underwater and made within the contest date and aquatory. Using only slide-film, it was not as easy to "create" as in our digital times, with all the tools we have now... but nevertheless; let's hope to see more of a photography and less of post-processing magic. Do your best, but please observe all the Rules, to avoid disqualification.

6th place
This was taken from an underwater viewing window at an aquarium. It depicts a dolphin falling back into the water from a jump. I flipped the picture vertically to make it look like it emerged from the bottom. Interesting play of light and water and motion.
