    E6 is a sea mount in the middle of Bligh Waters in Fiji. We entered the area known as the cathedral and I took some natural light images of my diver buddy as we moved through the space. I knew I was going to process them to black and white and tried to emphasize the light rays coming down through the cavern opening.

    It is wonderful to have underwater images entered into the lowlight assignment. I hadn't thought about it until I started editing but light falls off so quickly underwater that many underwater images are lowlight. The wonderful thing about this image is how the diver floats through the darkness.
