BEAUTIFUL work George - you have a wonderful eye for composition! IMO I think that 1, 2, 4 and 5 are perfectly suited for b/w. #4 reminds me of an old Sea Hunt episode - great use of the negative space at the left. The "geometric motion" in #5 is terrific and I love the sharp contrast of that small critter (?) in #2 crawling across the soft light objects.

My only minor issue is #3. There is a fair amount of detail there and it's a bit challenging to differentiate the shapes. Perhaps the color version would define the fish better. Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks for dropping by and comments. I do agree that the portrait of the scorpion fish (#3) doesn't look as good as it is in colour. Thanks again. Will try harder, dive more and take more images.

You are very welcome George - I envy your location and ability to dive like that. It looks like a really beautiful area. I can't get over the school of fish in that last one; perfect selection for b/w conversion IMO.

AWSOME!! What a wonderful abstract piece. It really makes you stop and look twice, and again and again. There's just so much interesting stuff going on there.

Do you live nearby - is this something you can easily do on the weekends or do you have to make special arrangements?

I live in Malaysia, so have to be a week holiday trip! Sea around my city is not that good, have to fly to Sipadan for good diving!
