This week topic is Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful. This is my picture underwater. In this underwater photo, I add reflections effect using Adobe Photoshop.
The first time I dive was diving at Benoa, Bali. The deep around 5 meters. Diving was only holding on the coral and looking at fish swimming in front of me. 20 minutes diving was like standing on the bus stop. Several days later, I decide to get PADI open water license. I want to dive like a diver, not like a bus stop. Benoa is definitely not giving enough excitement if you like diving. However, without Benoa, I will not have eagerness to get my PADI diving license.
I am new in weekly photo challenge. Now I want to participate in this Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects
This picture I name it “Nemo and Nemo”. I took them during my diving journey at Bunaken Manado. It was raining upper water. Hence, there was foggy underwater. I saw all fishes swim away to avoid me that time. However, these two clown fishes were swimming stand still. I dive closer and shot them. Both of them are essential in the picture. For you who don’t know “Nemo” or Clownfish, Clownfish are sequential hermaphrodites, meaning that they develop into males first, and when they mature, they become females. If the female clownfish is removed from the group, such as by death, one of the largest and most dominant males will become a female. The remaining males will move up a rank in the hierarchy. Therefore, there must be “Nemo and Nemo” in the picture because there must be male and female. If we took one, we won’t know it’s male or female. So, both of them are essential.
Look I found Nemo. This fish was swimming without fear when I swim closer. The view underwater is so cool. I took this picture using Canon PowerShot G9 during my diving trip to Bunaken Manado North Sulawesi.
